Sweet bull,and sounds like a sweet hunt also.I have been trying to talk my dad into putting in for muzzy in 61 so hopefully some more good bulls will convince him.A friend of a friend shot a 374 bull last week of archery that should help.he has 16 or 17 points and who knows how long it will take to draw unit 2.it seems like it slips a little further away each year.
That area has been pounded since archery season just becuase of all the easy access. You are going to want to be hunting low for this 3rd season hunt if you are looking for a good bull. One more thing it is going to be tough.
You may get lucky and still catch them bugling, to locate them, at first light and right before dark. Good luck on your hunt ! Send me a PM if you would like more specifics.
Bring them in on a string. I love this term, if you want to be successful on calling in Elk, try not to just sound like the other caller. We all laugh at each other when we are practicing Elk calling at home or while camping. When I first started calling in Elk, I had no idea what i was doing and it's funny how many I could call in. The biggest Bull that I have called in to date was actually my first. I was making cow calls and screwing it up big time. But it's obvious I didn't screw up...
