I will be heading out to unit 39 this coming Tuesday. I've never hunted in this unit or portion of the Bighorns. I've hunted cats just South of this unit out of Shell but that was it. There will be five of us, two with bull tags (myself being one) and the other three have cow tags. I've got good maps and some knowledge from a friend who has hunted 39 three times. I'm planning on glassing a couple of days prior to Friday's opener. We will have a trailer set up at the trucks for a base camp that we are planning to set up close to 14. Myself and another guy will set up near cookstove in the cimmaron to hunt out of. The weather was looking good at least for the actual hunting season. However, it looks like there will be heavy snow Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday prior to opener. Since we will be arriving Tuesday night or Wednesday evening, I was wondering if anybody knows if 14 will be plowed coming from Ranchester? This snow looks like it will be effecting my plans of where I was going. Getting back to cookstove might be a problem even with the side by side. Any tips for this area would be appreciated.
