Hello, new to the forum. While I have been reading a lot of different articles and forums, including some on this one, a lot seem to be older in places. So my question is, during second rifle season I have read to look for creek drainages. I did a little scouting in the area of 12, but I am not an expert if finding areas at times. Looking at all the different maps I have, drainages are of course not marked and I have been given a few hints from some to look for places where steep goes into flatter areas. An example is Milk Creek drainage. I have looked at this little creek on my topo map and FS maps and seen several areas that might resemble a drainage. Any other tips on finding these areas, and other tips for hunting these units would be great. We are renting horses to help get into the backcountry and will most likely be on the eastern side of 12, but that hasn't been put in stone yet. Thank you for any help.
