Wow, congrats on the tag, if it was east park, I could help, but I'm guessing you should get some help. Look forward to the story/pics. Good luck.
Mike

I hunted Deer in that unit years ago and my son and I saw more elk than deer. It was his first buck and a great experience.
Every time we go out there we see elk, haven't seen anything large just a couple of 5x5's but there are elk there.

good luck and shoot straight. LOL

I used to hike in to CC during the winter to hunt hogs, and turkeys in the spring. The place always held elk, and it was pretty common to find them out in the flat early morning. But the place has burned since I was there last, and with new property has come new and better access. There will be a lot of grass, and I suppose a lot of elk. If there aren't too many people, then you should have a great hunt.

I own the ranch east of hwy 16 that use to be a part of that property. I also leased that whole ranch for the ten years prior to it becoming public ground and know it like the back of my hand. Since the rocky fire the elk have change up their movements and a lot of them stayed north of hwy 20 for a while. I can see quiet a bit of the ranch from my place and will start looking. I haven't started hunting the A-zone yet but will soon. The deer hunters will getting them moving around. The easiest ground to hunt is near cowboy camp. If you want to hunt deeper in the ranch you will need some bodies or horses to pack meat. Maybe we can get together up there some time and look at the maps.

17. "RE: Cache creek bull"

Spent a lot of time looking for mythical monster bulls I kept hearing about from multiple diffrent sources pre season.After 8 days scouting over diffrent weekends I never saw a single elk while on foot scouting in the interior of the unit all bulls seen were literally from the road.I mean not even a cow in the back country I did jump what was probably a lone bull 4 miles back in but I never saw the animal just a loud crash from 40 yards and a lot more limb breaking and crashes and it was gone.


two bulls I seen regularly from the road pre season the one with the good tops was killed by a fella opening day that had hired a guide service.
After all the looking for the monsters and not seeing much I decided opening day to hit another area a deer hunter had told me about where he had seen a couple of nice bulls.First light we were hiking up in a road on the north side of 20 we stoped for a spell to look around and I glassed up a couple bulls south of 20 so we went back down moved spots and hiked in and got on them quick.I can't tell you how many time I had heard to be patient by diffrent guy but let me tell you after not seeing much scouting and having a bull right in front of you with a gun in hand it's tuff.The patients went out the window even though I had the whole two weeks of the season off and I had friends that were going to be around to help.There was one bull in this group that was probably better he was a little wider and not busted up but he was in the thick dead trees behind the one I shot with three other smaller bulls,but who knows if he would have followed the same path as the bull I shot, mine stopped on a open hill side at 375 yards and I just couldn't resist.

Sh!t, that bull is nothing to sneeze at. Sucks to tag out the opener because you didnt see what you were looking for. You still did well.

As we're we're hiking out I looked back across hwy 20 and saw a elk bedded a mile out so I grabbed the binos and just took a quick look and it was a really wide bull I didn't want to spend much time looking to see how good he was then be haunted by its size.It was pretty crazy how I struggled to see good bulls then on opening day they were all over in this particular place.

That was my first thought That he match your handle.
Got to be happy with him, He's a good Bull.
With only a few tags a year, He will rank up for your biggest one ever.
