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.
Accuracy. What an incredible way to give yourself a true advantage.
Go to your club and get a bunch of guys together - and put a target out there at 250 meters. Break out the deer rifles and see who can shoot a decent group, even off of the bench, at this distance. I think you will be shocked at how few can do it.
So - with that in mind, I recently set out to try to develop a semi-custom rifle that I could afford and that would shoot - repeatedly - at MOA.
I started with a platform that I love...
