That post means I don't know what I am doing on this complicator(computer). We will be staying at the Frontier Motel in Roosevelt, sort of expensive but we do not know of another place with in miles of there. Probably the night before the first day will sleep on the hill some where the get back to the motel around noon and back out by3:00 for the evening hunt. Not that we don't get critters mid day but it is to important to us to on location at least for the first day when people get them all confused. Use maps a lot to narrow down the search after a few days of scouting, then try to be where they will get pushed. Oh your questionabout the limited draw hunt, yes we both got bulls then, I ended up with a small 5X5 a 2 1/2 year old animal my buddys was bigger 6 pointer. That was a dream hunt. Our first hunt out of Roosevelt was 6 people and we got 4 bulls, one of the guys got his first elk, he was alone with his wife and she did not get one, but she did all the work and brain power in that hunt. One of the animals was 3rd from the last day a dandy 5er and it was up hill from the road(yeah). That was up Yellowstone creek at the trail head, that was a good hunt. All the others were ontop on 77 flat in amoungst the crowd of hunters.....jk
