    I have never hunted with them but I know alot of there guys. Very good bunch. The silver spur is a very large land owner in that area. I have not seen there lodge there,but the one up the road in wyo. is very nice. I dont think you could go wrong with them.

    I know it burnt from Labarge creek north, it burned around the lake on piney creek. My guess is that it got snider basin. That fire was around 65,000 acres, listed as 85% contained, burned 100 square miles aprox 18 miles west of Big Piney.

    Thanks for the info! Yes, the property is 65,000 acres in several tracts so am curious if they will send the public RFW hunters to good spots or save them for the guys that pay $5000 for a private guided hunt. Sorry if I sound skeptical :).

    Gravediggin, I know, but I found this while looking for info on the Silver Spur Ranch. This elk was taken by a hunting buddy on a DIY RFW at Silver Spur:
