    Thank you, we actually went 3 for 3, another buddy of mine was there and tagged out the day before. Definitely a trip to remember.

    The last 3 pics are from this year. Hope all the others were able to fill the freezers with grade A meat.

    2nd year!!!

    Last year we endured 2ft of snow opening morning, so the first couple days were getting stuck and pulling others out. Not the best as far as getting to where we wanted to go because of so much snow. It was a pain in the butt!!! We followed a few tracks with no results, just tired legs(knee deep snow). Saturday afternoon my friend spotted elk 8 miles away, we tried getting there but snow stopped us. So we made a game plan for the next morning to go in a different way to hopefully get to the hills they were on. Sunday morning we hike to where we wanted to go. We located a bachelor herd way up on a hill, out of shooting range. While looking around, I found a lone bull further down the hill closer to us that would ultimately give me a shot opportunity. 2 shots later I tagged my first bull elk. This year with the help of my lovely wifes few bonus points, both her and I drew tags again in the same unit. She shot her first big game animal, a good ol tasty spike. Later that afternoon I was lucky enough to tag my second bull in this not so sought after tag in 7E.

    Elk and Water

    You talking about 7e right? I have been out here scouting and not one dirt tank has water. There's barely any water in the catchment/trick tanks. Nice not to have 2 feet of snow like year, but dang, I wish it wasn't this dry. Still trying to find some bulls, hopefully we'll get on some this weekend. Good luck to everyone on this late, dry hunt.

    Late hunt tactics

    Look for the steep hills sides or top of hills and canyons. Last year I saw bulls almost to the top of some hills where it was impossible to see from roads. The only way we saw them was hiking up high enough for a vantage point. Just pray it won't snow 2 feet opening morning like last year. So far the weather looks like it will be great as long as there is no wind. And put plenty of layers on, remember it's easy to take off layers, then not have enough and be cold and miserable.

    7E Bugles

    Very cool, I have the late bull tag there. Hopefully I can find some bulls a few days before the hunt. I just really hope it doesn't snow 2 ft opening morning like last year.

    You doing some scouting? What hunt do you have?
  14. G_E_E

    Some people just don't get it.

    Unfortunately I see people camped within 1/4 mile of water every year on southern units as well. I'v called it in multiple times but usually Game and Fish too busy I guess. They have said it's a very common complaint.
