Goose Prairie Bull Elk Hunt
« on: June 15, 2017, 08:06:39 AM »
Well, it's taken 12 years, but finally saw something other than "Not Selected" on my hunt application results.  Headed to Goose Prairie for the firearm any bull elk hunt starting Oct 23rd.  Was drawn in there back in 2003 and had a great hunt.  If anyone got drawn in that area and wants to get out and do some scouting, let me know.  I plan on spending a lot of time hiking up there this summer.

Washingtonmuley that is a great speed goat pic in your avatar. I am on pins and needles for getting drawn in Wyoming this year for a chance at one.

@dreamingbig  @hunterofelk I have hunted a bit in 352 but will be concentrating my scouting efforts in 356.

Would appreciate any beta I could get from folks that my know the area better though.

Fun hunt, look steep nasty bottoms after general hits if you havent notched the tag, plenty of bulls, a 320-330 bull is very respectable out of there.  A little jealous, 14 points and ill be playing again next year.  If hunting the wilderness scouting may not pay off since animals will be migrating slightly, if hunting from road if a road is high hunt low, if road is low hunt high.  Bring packboards!

All I have to add is that if you end up pushing a bunch of them north out of your unit over 410, that would be fine with me.   :chuckle:

Just curious but why would you hang cameras now for the rifle hunt?  Do you expect them to be in the same areas or are you just looking to inventory them?
