Thanks for the info Saskie. Unfortunately Fort a la Corne is a draw zone only, and I will be hunting the regular rifle season which starts Sept 13. I think I may start scouting up north of White Fox, near the flats along the Torch river, maybe speak to some of the locals. If you have any more ideas on where to go, I would really appreciate them. Thanks again.
I've heard good things from that area, especially north of Love. Find the old Grassy Lake fire tower and start scouting that area and along the river there. Historically north of Snowden/Choiceland used to have a herd long before elk hunting became "fashionable", I haven't lived there for 15yrs now, so my info is a bit out of date.
Hunting is not usually a pursuit where instant gratification abounds. It takes a lot of time, practice, resources and patience to be a successful hunter. So when someone decides that an area they hunted only once without taking an animal is worthless and devoid of game, I don't quite understand it. These people usually jump from game management unit to game management unit; trying a new one every year.
Now don't get me wrong, there are people that just enjoy scouting and hunting...
