Fossil Creek
« on: June 26, 2017, 12:54:30 PM »
wondering what its like during modern firearm and muzzle loader season in the fossil Creek permit  area?  lots of people. I archery hunt but got the elk multi. season tag. also do u think the bulls will be more vocal during the muzzle loader season or early archery season this year?  in my experience on the east side I would say muzzle season would me more vocal but I don't have much experience on the west side and the experience I have is they r vocal as he'll the 1St 2 dayso of archery then they shut up? what's it like during muzzle season?

Did you buy the rayonier fossil creek permit? They went on sale yesterday and they are most likely gone....

Edit: just checked looks like there's 47 left...and they also raised the price this year. $435.

The only reason I would buy this again would be  if I drew the multi season. As for them being vocal, it'll depend on pressure inside the permit area. I can tell you they talk through muzzleloader season. However their responses are more to locators and then they zip up. Not so responsive to challenges by then. And as with anywhere it's hit or miss some days.

Good luck. I had the permit in 2013. Did not kill anything in there but had some close calls, that was also before it was open to muzzleloader season out there. Not sure how it's been the last couple years could be getting hammered. Lots of cuts and lots of glassing to do,  you'll be surprised how many times you'll see the same people driving around all day.
