Re: Crazy Mountains Mountain Goat
Thank you for the 2 weeks you helped out.
I dont have an elk tag. But we (family and freinds) have taken probably a dozen bulls in that country. I have spent the last 20 years or so growing up hunting in there. I've spent most of my time on the SE side of the Black, pretty close to where the fire started in Bear wallow. I actually got my turkey probably 2 miles or so NW of the starting point in May. The area around Big Lake holds a ton of elk in the summer. I drove through that are about 2 months ago for my turkey hunt and saw a ton of elk too. It was hard to drive by big lake in the summer and not see a few dozen elk. I have heard that the area around Big Lake burned pretty hot. I've also heard other reports from further east that it isn't as sever as the Big Lake area. Ive been folowing pretty closely what AZGFD will do for the tagholders in unit 1 and 27 (they are split by the black, and the fire started in 27). Right now it looks like it will depend on what the forest service does with access.
