good timing

Sometimes things just line up nicely... I'm heading out tomorrow night, into the storm for Katie's deer and elk hunt.  Going to have 4 full days of hunting available for us, but I can't believe our timing.  It looks there will be over a foot of snow where I did most of my scouting this summer, which in a way will stink, because I wanted to camp up a little higher.  Since we're going in late at night, I'll probably just grab a motel then hunt lower in the morning, and assess the camping situation midday.

Anyway, I couldn't be happier to see a foot of snow hit the day before we go deer hunting in an area with pretty good low elevation access and already good low elevation deer numbers.  

The elk hunting could be a little iffier, but I've got chains for the jeep if need be.  I'm not too concerned about getting her a bull, as she also has a 4th season cow tag, but I'm really excited about how this could line up for her deer hunt.

 

PUMPED!

Good luck Mark!! I really

Good luck Mark!! I really miss hunting elk in the snow. I just saw on our local news that guy guys are about to get hammered with like you said a foot of snow. That should make for an exciting hunt for sure. It's getting colder here too. still really no snow to spek of in the mountains yet but I hope that changes by mid November. I hope you guys have a good trip, Bring back a nice elk and be safe.

Good luck with your hunt as

Good luck with your hunt as this could really help things out. We didn't go out tonight and won't be tomorrow due to work but will be back at it Thursday evening and Friday morning again. It's been raining here for the last couple of hours but I bet it's already turned to snow up where we hunt. Even if it doesn't push more animals in they should be moving more and much easier to spot with snow on the ground.

Good luck to you and Katie. I

Good luck to you and Katie. I am suer it is a good feeling getting fresh show. Hope I am as lucky for third season. If we get as much as they are saying it will help push the deer down for sure and maybe a few elk but who knows for sure. Lets us know how it goes, enjoy your time in the woods and be safe.

Yeah, that's pretty lucky

Yeah, that's pretty lucky for sure!  We just came back this evening from our 2nd rifle hunt and would have planned to go out this weekend if we knew snow was on the way.  Oh well, still a good hunt and I felt fortunate that I didn't have to drive home in a blizzard.

Good luck!

I drove up to Tin Cup

I drove up to Tin Cup yesterday (12,000ft). It was snowing hard. I saw a bunch of hunters camping along the way and talked to them. Nobody is leaving. I gave them the weather report. Some of them didn't have any way to get the weather. This storm won't be too bad. It's nothing but warm weather after the storm.
