Yea that is exactly what we are planning on. I think were going to come in from the wyoming side and hunt north and east there. What kind of bucks did you see up there last year?

I've never seen what I consider a shooter buck in the area. I have little doubt they are present, and it seems some of the other guys have seen some good ones. But all I have seen are yearlings and have never harvested one, or even deer hunted in the area.

I was talking with the game wardern in that area and he told me that the elk last year calved in private property in wyoming just northeast of dempsey dome. 2nd season had a good amount of snow. Next year upper cherokee park will hopefully have some more animals, Forest service burned 1,200 acres for wildlife habitat. But it is effecting this years hunter because of the smoke.
