"First elk of the season"

Well, it was sure weird to pick up my rifle before the bow, but I had the opportunity to hunt for a cow elk on the Bar J CWMU last weekend. My wife and daughter were awesome to tag along and help out on the hunt.

Congrats. Why in the world did they have a cow hunt already? Depredation or what?

They started doing the earlier hunts for doe antelope as well. I drew a doe antelope tag this year and harvested my doe on opening day (Aug. 1). I would think there are a few reasons to have the hunt early - lessen the stress on herds that the later hunts put on (i.e. people chasing elk down on snowmobiles, rounding them up with trucks and surrounding a herd, etc.), and not forcing animals off their winter range by hunting them well into the winter.

Congrats on the cow elk, looks like a great family outing!

Good job!

Our archery cow hunts open August 1St. I have a muzzle loader cow tag for a hunt that opened yesterday and ends the last day of the month. I will be done with big game before school starts!

Congratulation ! That's a great time !!! Where you camping up there ? Some friends heard a shot and called the Fish and game. Later they found some elk legs in a camp. If so, that would be great news. They thought someone took a bull they were watching. They couldn't find him after that. They where around Gates Lake area.

We are camped right on Gooseberry Road about a mile below the Gooseberry Ranger Station. Left no legs in a camp.

That"s some beautiful country up there! Did you see me driving around in a orange razor ? Oh maybe you are talking about the ranger station at the bottom of the hill ? Not the ranger station across from MT Terrell ? There are two ranger station on that road. If it was at the bottom, I wasn't down that low.
