I used to hunt there years ago. We saw the most activity closer to the top of the mountain on south slopes. There is also a section of State Trust Land to the north and we have seen really good sign over there for both deer and elk. We stopped hunting there just becuase the elk were scatter out pretty good. We also ran into alot of muzzleloader hunter when theie season started. I have wanted to start going back as it is close to home, just wish there was more elk there.
Ya being close to home is nice since I can't get the time off to go on a week long hunt. We hunt it simply because we're building points and its great practice for when I get my big hunt. We saw elk between clear cuts last year but we waited till the last weekend to try to hunt Bull Mountain.
I just got back from my elk trip to Colorado and must say that I learned quite a bit about hiking in that one trip. I researched all I could on the internet and thought I was prepared going out. For the most part I was but I want to pass on a few major things I learned that helped me drastically!
1. Pack light. I know this may sound like common sense but believe me. After reading everyone's advice on what you need to pack, chances are your pack will end up weighing more...
