I plan to hunt and camp in an area frequented by grizzlies. Can I count on bear spray to deter bears?
Pepper spray, which is sometimes referred to as bear spray, has a good track record against bear attacks. Most bear experts think that your chances of avoiding injury are better with pepper spray as your means of defense rather than a gun. The larger canisters 8 ounces or more carried in a readily accessible holster, are recommended. Keep in mind the spray is to be used in event of an attack only. It is not to be used like insect repellent or to spray around a campsite to repel bears. There have been accounts of bears drawn to areas after the fact where pepper spray was used.
Elk hunters in Grand Teton National Park are reminded they are required to carry, and have readily available, bear pepper spray.
Are there any restrictions for hunting grouse with archery equipment?
As long as you have a bird license you may hunt any game birds with archery equipment during the open season. There is no restriction on the draw weight of bows or types of arrows.

I heard about the albino moose in southeast Idaho. How often does anyone see one of these?
In that particular population of moose, the occurrence of pure albino moose is just one animal in 100,000. Considering that Idaho does not have 100,000 moose at any one time, it is not a common sight.
