Well the first season is over and my son was unable to fill his tag here at home in 444. We only had two days off and after work to hunt but we had a great time. We only saw a few elk on public land and he passed up some cows hoping to get a bull but it never worked out. We saw a couple but just couldn't bring it together. Interestingly we have seen a ton of elk but most of them were all down in the fields on private land already. No snow up high really yet but we saw 6 herds numbering from 10 to over 100 elk in different fields. Usually only one or two bulls per herd. We also did not hear a sound from any of them this week over here. Neearly all of these elk were seen in the 6500 to 7500 foot raneg by the way.
Two days off nad we'll be back out again after some deer. Same thing only 2 days off and after work with 4 buck tags to try and fill do we're not going to be picky at all and just try and get more meat in the freezer. Good luck to everyone heading out again on Saturday.
