Re: Scouting trip.......... cow down?
Thanks everyone for the replies. Wish me luck. I'm headed down for my hunt tonight. The hunt doesn't actually start until Friday, but I want to get a little more scouting in. We just had a good storm come through this last weekend that brought a bunch of snow with it. This unit in particular depends on snow to bring the elk into it. My friend has been seeing a lot of elk come in due to the snow, so there should be more elk in the unit. Maybe Karma is already helping me out
. I'll be sure to make a complete write up of the hunt when I'm done and share it. Hopefully I'll have good news to report.
