    USDA Heber horse territory draft plan 2/14/2020

    Back before the rodeo fire,when the fences melted and they were just feral Indian horses a friend of mines family would round some up and sell them to Purina.

    I don't think a three week wait is horrible. We still find out before they drop last year's antlers

    The best 3 weeks of the year...

    Andrew, 4b will be incredible during the late season this year. everybody that I hunt with got elk tags last year, (wife, brother, nephew, stepdad, me) so hope is minimal. I seem to be pretty lucky on antelope 5 or 6 tags since 2001, so anything is possible.

    you've backpacked into the country and fished, but have you actually seen what the hybred dogs do? you also grouped all ranchers into supporting Thorpe, thats not the case. Most our friends to hunters.

    Pro wolf guys, Have you seen what wolves do to the ungulate population even the hybred dogs in AZ? Just curious if you actually have first hand knowledge. Or if you are working off what somebody else is telling you.

    Buster, Let preface what I am about to say with, I am an uneducated non degree holder. Now about data collection, it been my experience that data is not collected by the professor but by a few RA students needing a good grade and will many times adhering to the preconceived whims of whatever there presumptions are. It doesn't take a scientist to see that there were more elk before the hybred dogs were released in AZ and other places and it would be a safe assumption to say those dogs are part of the reason. So trphyhntr just might be onto something when he doesn't believe everything that's told him as gospel truth, furthermore, his opinion is just as valid as yours; because he as actually séen the effects those dogs have on the elk population.

    WTB: beater/broken Rem 700 rifles/actions

    I have a Mauser 98 action. I had the bolt turned a number of years ago, when I thought I wanted to shoot long range. Then I started killing stuff at close range and lost interest.

    Points for unit 1

    More like every guy with a Diesel and a bugle will be chasing you're calls from miles away. Bugling and raking trees with their truck idling.

    Points for unit 1

    Good luck, my brother had that hunt last year. He lives in the area scouted intensely the week prior, hunted every day of the season and saw two bulls over 350, taking a 285 bull on the last morning.

    horses in elk unit

    I remember this from when I was a kid. The Federal law that protects the horses and burros was intended to protect the horses and burros left by the Spanish conquistadors and settlers not the feral animals that are all over the place. This is where my memory gets foggy, I think it was after public outcry after the movie with robert redford called the electric horseman where he releases some million dollar horse in nevada to be free with some mustangs. See politicians have always been wimpy, pandering, self righteous babies.

    I hate when that happens. Good luck on your search
  20. Just to keep long form story telling alive. Lets try this again with Elk. I think G&F wanted me to break one of the seven deadly sins (bible reference for Seeker) this year with the amount of tags given to me and my family, Gluttony. My hunting year will end for the most part with the completion of what was my favorite elk tag in the state, Unit 1 late archery. From what I have seen during September(helping my brother on his archery hunt) and a couple days of scouting the age class that made unit 1 great is gone. (tag allocation and long range shooting is my theory for another thread). So with that being said and my serious lack of vacation time from the aforementioned way to many tags this year, my standards are much lower than they would be usually. The first mature six point if I am using my compound or any bull with my recurve will get alot of attention. First day of scouting, (Friday the week before the hunt) all I see are million turkeys, antelope and Deer road hunters. Day 2 Scouting I was losing my confidence and went up high to one of my goto spots. I see a no-brainer opening morning shooter (not pictured) the only catch is he is in a herd of about 200 elk so getting close will be a challenge. BTW they are still bugling. For you duck lovers out there. Crescent lake has a few. From this distance they look like coots, but they werent. Also Geese are on the shore Tomorrow Ill check out the north side of the unit again.
