Anyone hunting this unit? We haven't seen a single elk or fresh track. We hiked high and low, nothing. All the other hunters there have said the same thing. Abundent wolves though. Any help or recommends? ,)
,) This is about right. The wolves are taking their toll all around the state. I've heard bugling once this whole fall. Was a pretty frustrating bow season for many. I have no advice for the Lemhi area. Sorry. I don't even know what to do in my own backyard .
I was hunting 18 miles from Wy border in Colorado unit 6 and was talking to the dow and they said there was a resident pack coming in and out of Wy. My thought is that the wolf are making the elk more wild then ever trying to stay away from these Wolfe's. I think people will be hunting Wolfe's in Colorado in the near future!
Wind is one of the most crucial variables in any kind of big game hunting. It helps level the playing field between a hunter with a scoped rifle and the game animals being hunted. This is not novel information. Any hunter who has consistent success in the field knows this. I have tried a couple different techniques for keeping track of the wind. Here are a couple.
The most simple and obvious is to just stay cognizant of it. It is amazing how slight of a breeze you can sense if you just pay...
