Set up Camp on Colockum Last Weekend
« on: October 23, 2012, 07:08:06 AM »
  Tribes are out hunting since we saw a few gut piles either ON the road, or right next to it, and was driving  Colockum pass rd just  south of Petit, came around a corner to a GMC Sierra Ex cab with all four doors open in the middle of the road ( not quite blocking). As we drove by I suggested to the 6 N/A's  (walking back to the truck) that they might want to close the doors next time :bash:

Beautiful, I love the Colockum.
We usually camp near Shale Rock Road.

 More pics of the Table Mtn. fire area taken from Naneum Ridge just down from the first tower. the fire did not get to the Naneum side from the bottom. Stopped still headed downhill on Table Mtn. side. Looks like I'll have to do them one at a time....been waiting forever to get them posted all at once

I am getting excited to go hunt the Colockum Saturday. I love this time of year! Have you been up yet? Hope the fire is not gonna mess with to many folks. I hunt east of the black, always a good time with family.

They were up there during muzzy season shooting at everything. Herd from one hunter there was 3 dead cows along the road. Found a dead bull sunday that was shot within the last few weeks that somebody left 40 yards off the road and just cut the horns off of.  :bash: :bash:

Deer opener there were 4 of our hunting party over there on the south side. they said they had never seen so many elk out  bugling, meandering, and not caring about their presence. My nephew called me on his cell phone while on a walkabout Sunday morning (10-14) at about 8 AM and I could hear the bulls bugling over the phone. By  last weekend they mostly became ghosts. Those critters aren't stupid, and the N A's let 'em know we're coming soon. Good luck to all!
