I've found solitary bulls up high before in the snow as well, but that is usually in late October, early November, well past rut. I'm trying to decide if the cows will move down, and the bulls will follow, and how much snow it will take to make that happen.

I have always been told that it takes a snow high enough to reach their bellies before the big uns will move on down. That has also been my personal experience. Good luck and stay high.

I wouldn't give it any thought man.  The snow is short lived.  Chase the bugles, they are absolutely cranking right now!
It is foolish and wrong to mourn these men.  Rather, we should thank god that such men lived.  -General George S. Patton

It didn't amount to much so I'm not worried.  I would just assume that if the cows moved, the bulls would follow, at least short term. They need to breed. My guess is co.ing out of this weather and with a little warm up coming,  they'll be rip roaring up there. Getting pumped!

And we're off! This day couldn't get here fast enough. No cell service where I am going, so I probably won't update this until I get home. See you guys on the other side!

Yes, my FJ is pink, I'm all about Team Jacob, beer is not for the horses nor is whiskey for the men, they are both for me.

I promise I won't wait too long to update this thread, but I have to take care of some business first. First of which is storing a hide to be tanned! What's the best way to store this until I can get it to A Tannery, or taxidermist to take care of for me?

I don't have one and i haven't made my mind up who i'm going to use yet. I read some different opinions online, looking for more.

Well, I am no expert, but when I called mine he wanted it kept dry and in a cooler with ice.  That was based on a plan to drop it off on the way back from Wyoming, so it was only on ice for 2-3 days.
