    Does anyone know area 222 south of Ely? I drew a cow tag and have never been there?

    Horse and Cattle Camp Washes around Molly's Nipples.

    My other favorite spot is on the East side of Mt. Grafton up from the Geyser Ranch.

    Thanks, Day break, where would you be? Base of Maggies? I scouted it over Labor day and was told about it?

    As hot as it's been that last few weeks and little rain, you'll probably be able to catch them coming from any of the springs at daybreak.

    That's going to be your best bet until the moon goes away. They disappear into the thick real fast in the morning and don't come out until after dark.

    Around midnight they tend to swarm around Connors Pass.:D

    It's the pass West of Majors Place. It may be Connors Pass, I can't remember. There's a little rest area at the top.
