Congrats.  Great area.  Just wish there weren't so many hunters.  Used to hunt there for years, but had to hit the ground a few times because of all they bullets flying around.

Thanks! Ya definitely lots of competition for what little amount of true spikes there are up there. It can be a dangeous area if you are between a green dot and a group of elk or even behind the elk from a green dot. We had a partner get shot at because he was behind a group of elk that were being shot at from colockum pass...scary sh*t

We saw branched bulls and cows everyday on the east side of Beacon Ridge Rd from Army Rd to Brushy Crk cutoff, no true spikes.  Finally got it done on Wednesday in the wind farm.  And yes Tuesday night was sustained gusts of 40-50 all night, had to get up at 2 a.m.  to save the Costco tent :yike:.    Congrats :tup:

Tuesday night was BRUTAL up top around the reserve. I was up all night wondering which tree was going to come down and flatten me. I belive that the wind storm blew the elk out of the reserve i believe the reserve was full of elk out of sight from everyone chasing them around since September 1st and the now CONSTANT hunting pressure with 3 full seasons back in action(whyd they bring back smoke pole season :dunno:) plus the ppl scouting during deer.  The hunting pressure dissipated Wednesday. I just hope the 15 youth cow permit holders fill their tags!!!
