So far the elk are still very high in 76 up around timberline even with the bad weather this week.. hunted middle ute creek 4 year ago (west end of 76) , elk all over that area but it's a pack in too far for a day ride with the switch backs it's about 11 miles.Pole creek and pole creek mountain can be very good .I know guy who hunted hard last year in the pearl lakes area and was very unhappy with what he saw , nothing even close to big there.There are lots of very good elk in 76 you should score , but the real monsters are few, you'll have a blast there, best hunt I ever had !! Come as early as you can you don't want to waste hunting days scouting ..good luck
Here is a very handy and effective device I use to dispense corn with - but it could also be used to dispense any other seed or deer feed.
I had an old feeder that had a failed motor... I made a set of brackets to attach the feeder to the rear of the 4 wheeler - the lower one encircles the feeder and has a forward section with holes drilled in the outer ends of the bracket... these holes align with two 5/16" bolts that drilled into the rack of the 4 wheeler.
The upper bracket is an "L" shaped...
