Wilderness Elk

Checked some cameras this past week. I thought I'd share a few videos of bulls that you won't see in the lower wintering grounds :tup:

Nice captures!

Looking forward to hunting this area for the first time this coming year. Moved here in October. Trying to get several of my family into it. Wife wants to hunt archery, so I'll do that too. Going to have several kids hunting rifle. Have to figure out which tags to apply for.

Have to put 5 thru hunter's safety in a couple weeks!

Thanks for sharing.  What is the food source that puts a bull right in front of your cam?  I would have imagined more snow in the wilderness this year.

I don't tell what I put out in front of the cams. It's about as effective as heroin. Once you use it once, you are hooked for life.

This camera was 1.3 miles out of the wilderness and put in a naturally warmer area. Not much snow hangs around in the winter which makes for a good wintering spot.

These videos were from early winter. I'm not going to share the best videos I have.

I believe it's because AVI files aren't supported by the iPhone. I can't watch them either.

I put the cameras up on Saturday for the winter. I saw a dandy 6 point in the area that made it. Elk are still high with a few local bulls down low in the unit. I am glad to say the 7 bulls I was watching in the area during modern elk season survived.

If the snow level stays high next week, I may try to get into the area again, but otherwise that's a wrap for 2017 in this part of the unit. Hopefully the batteries last until March.

Trust me no one helps fellow hunters more than Naches - he's given a bunch of us he doesn't even know all kinds tips, assistance, honeyholes and the likes.   Yea he's a cool dude but he's not trying to act like it.   He's got a method that he's always trying to improve on and having that method copied all over obviously wouldn't help him improve his, not to speak for him of course.

I won't give out a possible business idea to someone. That is all I am going to say.

Question for Naches Sportsman? What do you know about Betty's meadow at the end of the 1605 in the Nile? Who are the people involved in the memorial? Was quite surprised to run into it this year while hunting.

Thanks all. I've decided to take a break from trolls and am signing off of the site for a while. Also, if you're a member and haven't had interactions with me in the past, I don't want pm's asking where I go. Pm's are still acceptable with those who have contacted me in the past. I'm done giving free handouts.

Boneaddict, I hope to run into you at some point this winter.


Pegasus, don't know the story behind that memorial, but know where you are talking about.

I am just stating my opinion.   I have been reading the forum on and off today.   My son in law got me started in HW.  I love it, some of my highlights are articles, pictures from Naches Sportsman, PlateauNDN, Hirshey, Bone Addict, Saylean.    I was reading today about changes that Bone Addict and Bearpaw are considering with the subject matter focusing around nitpiking and negativity.   It is a sad moment when people like Natches Sportsman feel that the only relief is to back away for a while.   I think the word "badgering" would fit in well with "nitpiking".   I dont want anyones honey hole, I like hearing what works and what doesn't.   My son and I have been elk hunting down for our 13th year, have yet to bring home meat, we have had encounters with elk but either on the way out or just not the right amount of antlers.  We enjoy it, he is over hunting today for the weekend for late archery.

Naches-
I totally feel for ya, and know exactly how you feel. I dont share anything any more. I have worked my a$# off and been very sucessful at killing big rooseys and now the dead beats are like dang leeches, every move you make the slime ball suckers are there to bleed you. I dont post or share anything, its so bad i have a special vehicle i drive only during hunting season that no one knows is mine. Keep it real, and merry Christmas to all!
