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.
All of us, at one time or another have gone on a hunting trip and had what we call “Blue Bird” weather. Warm evenings and almost hot days. We hunt in our t-shirts and enjoy the sunshine. We are way up in the mountains and have a whole week to hunt. How could it get any better?
That is, until we score on that big buck or bull. We work to get it out of the field and skinned as quickly as possible to cool it down. But try as we might, we just can’t get...
