Everyone probably knows this, but it seams that they will sit down and howl for quite a little while, and the ground will be just matted with tracks. This "randevous spot" will often be in the same area on a ridge or knob. Around here they love to travel through burns and small logged areas within the timber. Can a guy get a horse through the timber, or is it too thick or blown down?
Good luck ventilating mutts
It might not matter, if 6x6 is hunting the 101 zone, it closes tonight at midnight. As far as most of the 101 zone, it's a mix of heavy timber and areas you can travel on horseback. There's quite a few logging roads etc that are best accessed on horses, but it's pretty tight once you get off most of the roads. The southern bit of it opens up pretty well, but is a bit harder to get to. We've got a ton of rescent burns too. But it looks like a guy would have to go elsewhere to fill a tag till next season. West of 101 would be a good bet.
