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.
Over the years I have seen several elk and deer hides left in the woods by hunters and I have to wonder why they do this? I fully understand and agree about getting the hide off the animal as soon as possible to cool the meat, but why not pack out the hide with you and use it? As far as I know there are no state laws that require you to take the hide home, but to me why waste such a beautiful part of the animal? Some might think they have no use for the hide or it costs too much to tan....
