The Bob can be harsh unless your with some one who has hunted it most their life, if you find them they can be some old bulls but you'll earn them usually unless you can get on a ranch on the front.
Good luck to ya!
Hey, if they want to give a new guy to the area some tips I'm all ears. ;)
My hunting partner's cousin hunts there every year, so we are counting on him for some leads.
Yes, the Bob has been tought the last two years. Three years ago, pre-wolf, I saw a decent number of elk. The next year, none in the Bob, two bulls close on the front the last day but only had a cow tag there. Last year, two cows just inside the Bob the night before the season then NOTHING, not even on the front, despite people having good luck for archery season. Talked to a lot of locals, the elk simply weren't there...anywhere....anymore. One guy got a 6X6 in the Bob while we were there but he said it was the only elk he saw in 2 full weeks on horseback!
