    https://bonnercountydailybee.com/news/2021/feb/09/idaho-wolf-populations-remains-stable-despite-high/ I read this article about wolf management and mortality from the adjoining State of Idaho. Although, I am not convinced that Idaho is a state to emulate when it comes to fish and game...

    Tundra or Silverado

    I sold my 2007 Tundra. In the past, I have had that Tundra for 13 years and prior to that it was Chevrolet Silverado. I am looking for a used Tundra or Silverado in the 2015 to 2018 range. Crew Cab or perhaps a Double Cab. I need it to hunt in and to pull my toy hauler in the summer. Any input...

    MH Mule Deer Hunting 2020

    I started mule deer hunting on September 15 on the Greys River. A friend traded me info in that area. I am letting him and his entourage stay in my bunkhouse for his 54-1 elk tag. Based on the info he provided, I may or may not turn the water or heat on in that bunkhouse. That about tells the...

    Hornady ELDX

    A couple of weeks ago, I shot a 3 year old muley buck here in Wyoming. I was shooting my Sako 85 in .300 Winchester Magnum with a 178 grain Hornady ELDX bullet being pushed by 72 grains of H4831SC. While quartering the buck, I discovered a 33 grain portion of the bullet in the opposite shoulder...

    Grizzly Bear Attack in NW Wyoming

    A shed hunter was attacked in the Sunlight Basin (East Painter) today by a grizzly bear. He has been airlifted to the hospital in Billings. I will provide a link when I have the time. Right now, the USFW is in charge of the grizzly bears in Wyoming and not the G&F. I hope the local man survives...

    Moose Sheds

    No, there are no moose shed pics in this post. I have found a lot of whitetail, mule and elk sheds over the years in Wyoming. I have even found some deadhead rams while wandering around. My usual technique involves finding them when I am not looking for them. When I lived in North Idaho, I found...

    I was out with a friend the other day doing some target shooting. He was shooting a recently purchased Keltec .22 SA pistol that holds 33 rounds.

    Hunter Opportunity or Deception?

    I have been a hunter for a very long time. It was always my belief that when hunting that my tag did not guarantee me an animal to harvest but only an opportunity. I have been told this by various G&F employees especially in the last few years. By way of background, I have hunted Wyoming...

    Mystery Ranch Metcalf W/ Quick Draw Rifle Sling

    I purchased this new from Black Ovis in 2018. This includes the Mystery Ranch Quick Draw Rifle Sling. The color is coyote. I have hauled a mountain goat and a mule deer with this pack since I purchased it. The pack works great but I am afraid that at 65 my backpack hunting days are just about...

    Region F (So Far)

    The Big Plus here is G&F listened and actually had check stations on the Chief Joseph Highway to cover the Sunlight/Crandall deer, elk, sheep, goats and moose units.

    NW Wyoming Snow Storm

    I just pulled my trailer out of the backcountry. I was worried it might spend the Winter up there if I didn't. Looks like cold temperatures and more snow for the next couple of days. I saw a lot of elk hunters pulling out of 51-1. It is hard to say how much snow will accumulate. They say 12"-15"...

    Comparing NR tag numbers in F, G and H

    I was looking at deer populations and NR tag Quotas in 3 different regions in Western Wyoming. I wish that I had looked at these figures while the local G&F was proposing significant changes in deer hunting seasons in March and April of 2019 in Region F. I am left with some serious questions of...

    Puzzling Predator Counts

    I was thinking about the subject of predator counts a few weeks ago. This was after reading an article claiming that only 80 wolves now live in YNP. At a meeting with G&F in March of 2018 I asked Luke Ellsbury about mountain lion numbers in NW Wyoming. I specifically asked if the lion...

    Region F Deer Tags

    I have been asked by some non-resident hunters what they should do if they were contemplating putting in for the Region F deer tag. I was going to wait until the final changes come out in F before suggesting anything. If you have not already put in for this tag, I would advise you not to until...

    Question Re: Annual Harvest Reports

    How does the G&F in Wyoming determine the annual harvest of deer or elk in a particular game unit when they have no check stations in that unit and the harvest reporting to G&F is not mandatory?

    Kahles Binocular Experience

    Attaching rifle to backpack

    For years I had an Eberlestock hunting pack with a built in rifle scabbard. The pack was all right but the scabbard was great for packing a rifle. Last year at the expo, I bought a Mystery Ranch Metcalf with the Quick Draw Sling. The Quick Draw sling sucks in my opinion. Anyway, I discovered a...
