Cowiche unit
« on: October 23, 2013, 07:02:07 AM »
Heading out with two novice hunters and one cow tag.  Looking forward to the get away time and crisp air.  Has anyone been in the sagebrush area off the mill road?  With the warm weather I don't expect to see them low yet but would like the novice to fill his cow tag.  I'm driving a red crew cab DURAMAX with a winch on the front with a black grill guard.  Usually stay of the middle fork but liable to see me anywhere in the unit.  If you see the truck flag me down especially if you need help.  I answer to Pat or Wildman.  Good Luck to All

Been a pretty big heard hanging out low off of Antanum road. Seen them a couple nights last week.  Probably 80-100 animals.

.   If your talking about the herd about a mile up the north fork on the left side , they are in there every year. Also they are on private property.

My father in law killed his cow during muzzy season in the sage off the mill rd and I know of 3 bulls shot in there last week by permit holders. Also 2 other cows and a spike during muzzy season.

My buddy shot a nice spike down low in the muzzy season, he had lots of opportunity on other spikes as well.

Hatton Rd. is not closed. Just close the gates. It is a green dot road.

We spent a week up high at the head of weddle canyon and didnt see squat during muzzy season. Hadnt been an elk up there in months. Kept moving lower and lower til we ran out of time. No food up high during the dry summer i suspect has kept them down low. Never saw an elk in any camp we saw.

I say that landowner can kick rocks! Is that the road that they were talking about in the yakima herald a month or so ago?
