Amazing encounter and lovely photo! I wish I could make the trip, but I live all the way over near Idaho Falls. Hoping some GGO make their way down here this Winter, too. It is my first year living here, so I am learning all of the good places to go birding :)

I have skulked through the same land as Dean, twice this fall/winter no luck seeing one of these beauties.
Good luck to all this holiday season and during the CBC

Ken, it was a quarterback shot, front and center. So lucky am I.
WOW … great look and photo. I always seem to find them screened by branches etc. :-)

Jeff, I wish!
This has to be a one-off due to the heavy fog near the Payette today. I couldn't believe my eyes, and got so excited I'll probably need to get my car interior detailed!
I had zero connectivity, in auto route trolling mode, and was watching the hunters leave, the red tails playing, and the fog roll in when I found it. Crikey, what a big owl! Roosting about 3 ft off the ground. I didn't linger, no longer than the time to get 3 photos. I made a u-turn after the hunters had left and it was still there, preening!
To be as quasi precise as a sensitive species sighting is allowed, this was in Gem County, Montour WMA, about .5 mile or so from the Payette River. Someone tell me if I need to do anything else, or less than.
