Burgess Junction, WY
I was just wondering if anyone hunted north of burgess junction this last year. I was up there for about a week and only saw 2 deer and a moose. I put on a lot of miles to get away from all the people and still nothing. I only heard about 3 other shots from other hunters so they must not have been seeing much. I used this trip as somewhat of a scouting trip for when I would draw an elk tag for 38. Now with the lack of animals i really don’t know where to apply.
So my questions are:
Are there a lack of animals in the area?
I saw a lot of old sign but nothing fresh…do they move down to the private land?
Is there somewhere better I should be applying…maybe less hunting pressure
Eastmans magazine said it was a good elk hunting area…never even saw one…are they full of it?
I will gladly take any advice you guys have
