Was he driving home in a dually yesterday with that rack in the back? I saw a truck going south on 84 between Post and Snyder yesterday evening with a rack that looked about like that. Beast!

We Brought Them Solely for Packing in and Out. I Led Mine in and Out Loaded

[url=https://servimg.com/view/14725958/1579]

After I Completed My Scouting Trip I Decided That we Needed to Pack in Just Under 6 miles. With That we decided to Take Horses Mainly for the Pack out. Once I Cut the First Hide Quarter Loose on our First Elk I was Very Glad we Made that Decision.

Are there services that if you kill will meet you on mountain to pack meat out by horse/llama?

I've heard the wolves in Idaho are way too many and they come to bugles and the Elk have learned to keep their mouths shut.

Yes. Always Check with Local Outfitters and Packers in the Area you plan to hunt and Set up Before Your Hunt. I was Planning on Packing Ours Out on Our Backs until I Decided to Go in That Deep. Now That I Have Cleaned 2 Elk I Will Never Ever Plan that Again if I Plan to Hunt over a Mile In. You just Do not Understand How big A Elk is Till you Get one Broke Down. I Made 6 Trips in and Out with The Horse Loaded

Yes. There are usually locals in "town" that will provide the service. Check availability BEFORE you hunt though. I know some guys that got in a pinch after they got a bull on the ground. Luckily the guy they contacted put them in touch with someone who got the job done.

Call a local butcher who does elk and ask for names/ numbers. They’re used to out of state hunters needing help.

Leaving Saturday morning for my first elk hunt in Wyoming. Looks like we are meeting the cold weather there! Hunt starts Monday, so hopefully we miss the hard cold/heavy snow that’s being forecasted. Hoping the snow pushes the elk down.

Moon phase is good, rut should be going on, and the first big cold front of the year!

Forecast in SW Montana is snow starts Sunday. North of here they’re forecasting 4’, here further south less. A lot is elevation you’re at. Hopefully you’ll be ok in Wyoming.

I found a 4x4 yesterday across a canyon. Cow called and he finally started moving towards me. Out of the canyon 3 more bulls came up, one was bugling at 30-40 yards in thick juniper trees. Another looped behind me and scented me I think, and they took off. Great fun- I found a new spot. Best part- it was 3 miles from where we’re building our hone.

Wolves have been declared recovered by USFWS and delisted under the ESA (with the exception of Mexican Grey Wolves in New Mexico and Arizona). They are listed by the IUCN as a species of least concern. There is no scientific based reason to reintroduce wolves to Colorado. There are wolves currently in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Oregon, Washington, and California. Some of those spread from the Yellowstone reintroductions and some walked down from Canada.

There will be wolves in Northern Colorado soon (and likely are some now) no matter what they do.

The bottom line is that whether they walk in or are reintroduced, they need to be managed heavily by the state wildlife agencies through hunting or trapping. They have no predators and will be very hard on elk, deer, and moose populations not to mention livestock.

There is also the disease issue. Wolves could aid the spread of CWD. Wolves also carry a disease called hidatid disease that can be fatal to humans. Stay away from wolf feces.

Removing the options of state wildlife managers with legislation like this is a really bad move overall. It will limit CPW's options regarding wolf management. It will cost money that is better served in some other area.

Montana wolf tags are $19 resident, $50 non- resident. If I take an 8 hr class I can trap on my property for a $1 tag.

Kill them all.

As I was leaving to drive 1 1/2 hours and sleep in my truck to hunt elk in the morning, the local herd came down on private land a mile from our Bozeman house. 50 yards from the road. No hunting, obviously. And they know it.

All I can do is laugh.

Even first thing in the morning as soon as I left camp I was already down to just the lightweight.

Be cold at camp in the mornings so that you are comfortable when you are moving around. If you are comfortable sitting still you will be shedding clothes minutes after you start hiking

Me too. I have a chama hoody instead of a kiln and an old predator camo adrenaline jacket for my shell, but otherwise that is my kit. I love the obsidian pants.

You may wear some of that at night but I normally wear a long sleeve tee shirt and thin pants. Shorts aren't a bad idea during the first couple of weeks of Sept.

I wore the boot top leggings as my underwear, obsidian pants, and lightweight shirt the vast majority of the time. As awesome as the kiln hoody is, I hardly ever wore it just due to it being too hot when I was hiking but I would absolutely still bring it in case you get a good cold snap. I also wore the kiln while sleeping. We had frost on the ground every morning for temp reference so it was chilly but not exactly cold. Plus its a dry cold so it doesnt eat through your clothes like it does in the higher humidity of Texas.

The only thing that got cold on me the entire trip were my feet while I was sleeping but that was because I was using a quilt which has a tiny opening at the bottom. I remedied this by stuffing my backup pair of socks through the hole and was good to go.
