    Wow! Any sign of wolves or the impact of them?

    The wolves are mostly on the west side of there state and are having quite the impact on the elk and deer. There is always the occasional sighting and kill on other parts of the state.

    Blue tongue and another disease have all but wiped out the deer and antelope.

    When's the elk roast and beer festival... remember, many of us have a 10 hour drive to get there on time, so please plan accordingly :D. Congratulations on the hunt!

    If you are going to drive 10 hours for beer and elk, then we might as well host it on the banks of the Bighorn. Stop by anytime.

    Now THAT'S an ELK!!! We only saw 3 cows for our whole season in our GMU, kinda wondering what's the point of hunting here at all sometimes. Very well done!!

    Nice elk...Landowner tag I take it? The country looks like it's right out of Reedpoint, Roundup, or Springdale eh.

    Thanks for the nice comments. I drew Area 410, which is a 0.90% chance to draw. One of the two hardest to draw. I hunted just north of Winnett on block management.

    Nice bull, I took a 3x4 outside of Townsend. It wasn't the Bull I was looking for but its meat in the Freezer.
