I wass wondering if the wonderful blast of winter was affecting the elk and there behavior. This weekend we didn't see much of a Change, a couple bugles and still high in the mountains. Just wondering if there moving around at all.
I hunted muzzy season from 9/12 - 9/17. Hunting at the 10000 ft elev in unit 8. Saw a few animals opening weekend, but as the weather warmed, things went really quiet and the elk disappeared. Oddly enough, I talked to two different groups of hunters that were into elk at the 9000 ft elev during that time. one guy killed a 6x6 bull that had been screaming for 2 days prior. Havn't heard what the weather has done to their disposition, but I'm guessing it could only be good. Wish I was in posession of an archery tag to be hunting these last few days of bow season. When/where are you hunting in 7/8?
I've been hunting every weekend kinda all over. We have hunted around the old roach site for a couple weekends, greenridge for a weekend, and the rawahs for a weekend. We havent seen a thing so far. Last weekend we finally heard some bugles and hunted around 10,000 feet. We talked to guy who said they have been chasing a heard around and a guy poked a 6X6 friday so they helped him pack it out. I was just wondering if the elk were going to hold out up high or if we should look lower. I'm feeling some pressure to atleast get into some elk.
What do you do with those empty nylon feed bags or dog & cat food bags? Can you say recycle? I use them for target practice for the youngsters. Take your empty shopping bags, stuff them into an empty nylon feed bag. You can also use old clothing or rags, (but put them in the bottom so it doesnt get top heavy). When your bag is full, fold the top over, punch some holes into the top and zip tie the top shut. Paint, draw, paste, or have the kids decorate their new target. Set it out 10 or 20...
