[QUOTE=bigngreen;687413]Don't bother to come to Dillon MT, the elk are already coming down into the hay fields,thats over a month early and the Blacktail will be empty by rifle season. The area I hunt usually has a couple camps of hunters, last season there were 8 horse camps and dozens of trucks. Worstot want anybody hunting ever, every where we went guys would drive around us cause they knew we were locals and we knew where tofind elk. Several of the best ranches that were block land did not re up this year because there was so much traffic, accidents and rude people on the roads they were pissed so they locked it down!!!! The one guy was moving his cows and a group of out of state hunters drove into the cows honking their horns and blew them out and then chewed out the rancher for moving his cows on their land while he was hunting
what made the ELK come down so early ? Fire ,weather or what.
can't say that i blame the rancher's ,but i hate it.others told us the MATADOR RANCH did not want anybody on their land
