Depends

Im not sure what type of camping you like to do, but you can take 82 north off of 87. It will take you right into Long lake, which Treamine is close to. Plenty of camping areas off of 82. Gooseberry and Hutch Mtn are hard to beat.  Its very pretty and cooler in that area, but a further area than what I suggested for hunting. I have 2 good buds that have drawn the Archery Bull tags and I will be with them most likely the 1st weekend. But that starts September 10th. One thing about 5BS is it has alot of Elk, so you should find something, especially if you hunt near a couple of Canyons.

Camping

We do primitive tent camping about anywhere we can get our trucks into. So I am sure we will be able to find something off of 82 near Long and Tremaine lake. I am interested to learn this part of the unit this go around, espeically after your recommendations. I put in alot of miles on foot when I hunt as that is the way I have always done it, so I will definitely be hunting off the beaten path and will find some canyons to get into. Would you expect there to be snow by Tremaine lake and Jacks Canyon for our Dec 3rd hunt?

Excellent

You might get some snow through the entire unit. Its just hard to tell. Last year the state had a big storm around then and we had a lot of hunters go missing for a couple of days. But all ended well for everyone.  Alright knowing that you like to walk, the only thing about 5BS is there are alot of roads everywhere. Thats why I recommend Jacks Canyon. So also look to the north east section of the unit, RD 69 off of 87 going to Chavez Mtn, thats the the bondary. I actually love that section, if you have Google Earth, check it out! You will be able to walk that Canyon for ever without all the roads.

Another Question

I really appreciate all the information. Gets me excited to head up there and stomp around. I see on the unit map that RD 69 is the boundary off of 87. I also see Chavez Mtn as well. When walking around by Jacks Canyon, where do you suggest to park to begin the hike? I see on my map it looks like RD 82H breaks off of 82 and then turns into 868 and goes back towards Jacks Canyon but not sure how that road is or if we get into that area from RD 69 just off of 87? Thanks again.

Can't Wait

We will be heading out this upcoming weekend to check out cameras. The area has been getting hammered lately with rain. I hope it keeps it up!

updated pics

I updated my galleries to show trail camera pictures. I didnt get anymore of the Clubbed Bull, but still have some descent Bull pictures. I put the camera in video mode now. Again I wish BGH would have a section for videos.
