Roost, Welcome to BGH.

Until we get a good frost, we still have some around. A lot of your answer will depend on what elevation you will be hunting at.

Thanks Hiker. Probably 6000 to 8000.

I would be expecting some. It sure is a blessing when the cold weather sets in and the buzzworms and bugs go away. Big smile

I hunt from September 14 thru the 30th at about 6000 to 9000 feet in the sawtooths. We do have bugs and mosquitos at this time frame, even with the first snows. It does not stay cold enough to kill them off in September. I think this year will be even worse with the amount of water we have. So be prepared.
