Opting for truck instead of ranger?? Congrats to your wife, 16A is a heck of a tag. Hope this little bit of weather gets them on their feet

Just talked to Chas.
It's been slow so far. Bulls not really bugling yet.
They're trying to find a waterhole with good sign so they can set-up on.

Will update if I hear anything!

If you talk to them again, tell them to hunt the south side of Bear Wallow, in Deep Creek. I heard it is loaded with elk.

Just got a text from them.

Elk still not talking.
Very dry, most water holes are dried up.
They found a hole with some water, and are going to sit on it this evening.

Also got a few pics

Still no luck . So far bulls have been quiet, and they've been hunting water.

But the bulls are just starting to bugle some, so hopefully they start getting some opportunities!

Spoke to Chas this afternoon. It's been tough. Full moon, & elk moving at night. Hopefully this front moving through, and the moon chaning will help.

She has until the 14th to hunt, so hopefully it gets better every day.


I leave tomorrow morning for Arizona, U6A. I'll continue to update as service allows.......
