Cograts on the hunt.

Hope to do that hunt in the next year or so.

I'd reccomend it highly. It's a great opportunity to hunt the high alpine country in late summer and see the muley's in their summer habitat. Mine was the only shot I heard that opening morning--little suprised at that as there's alot of deer in that area and a few hunters spread around and I was in an a spot that I'd hear shots from quite a ways away. I got out of there later that day as it started to rain and it's been raining every day since. That can get pretty miserable--fortunate in that regard to get out when I did. Good luck next year.

I hunt the High Buck season up in the Pasayten Wilderness Area. Designated wilderness areas really appeal to me as they typically pretty rugged, beautiful high alpine areas with no roads and often not too many trails and are the most protected federal recreational lands--one aspect of that is that nothing mechanized is allowed--not even a game cart with a wheel. So it's just folks on horseback or on foot, which limits the hunters substantially.

They only open up 4 of the designated wilderness areas and the Lake Chelan Recreation Area in the Cascades for this hunt (then the small ones around the Olympics), so pretty limited really considering there are 31 designated wilderness areas in Washington State.

Just gotta pay your dues and find your spot, which I've done.

Will be paying my dues.

My friend just moved over there going to scout 2011 and hope to hunt 2012.

Thank you.

Always seems like they will roll down hill as far as they can. I am still waiting to kill one where gravity works uphill the same as downhill. Those steep slopes do get treacherous when wet.
