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.
Like most hunters we all are looking for something to keep the deer on our hunting ground and to bring more deer into our hunting ground. Most of the time we just don’t have the room or funding for this to even happen. We lease a lot of smaller properties here in Kansas and we know that the farmers are needing every little bit of ground they can get to make a living. So if they give up any ground at all it’s not much. As I was talking to one farmer he told me he could give up about a half acre...
