Daughter drew colockum youth muzzleloader cow tag
« on: July 06, 2017, 02:00:11 PM »
Before I get flamed for asking questions, youth elk tags are pretty limited so you put the kids in with a hope that they'll have a chance.. and since there are very limited eastern muzzle tags, it makes it hard to put them in for your typical units..

Anyhow, am trying to plan a trip scouting before she starts school. Any insight anyone wants to give on places to camp, start, etc would be appreciated.

Good luck to the hunter.  The shame is on those that don't share and help a kid fill a tag. Wish I had intel to pass along.
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 would go the first weekend of the general season and see how you do but talk to everyone that you can midday about where they are seeing elk and what they know for hot spots.  The weekend after it closes for the general season her tag is still good that is when you will have your best opportunity.  I believe Veteran's day is in there as well.  She should have the day off of school, take that day off and I bet that is the day you actually get a shot.

There are tons of roads over there.  Right now the cows are herded up with calves and only moving where you can see them well early morning and late evening.  I would start getting familiar with the area and roads now.  I would go again for Labor day weekend and get out early in the morning.  They should be in many of the same areas then that they will be in during her season.

EDIT: scratch all that I was thinking rifle tag.  PM sent.

Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

Finding a cow should be pretty easy. We have 10 acres that you can use as base camp if you need. What are the season dates?

:bash: Muzzy tag, scratch the part about veterans day, that applies to the rifle tag.

That muzzy tag is a great one.  My daughter has the adult muzzy cow tag.  I will shoot as much intel as I can.  I will PM you my cell number.

Thanks for the advice Ranier and the offer Vandeman, may take ya up on it.

May be able to get that way early Sept, she is starting her first year of high school so once that gets going in August, we may be stuck till the season.. Normally she'd let me pull her out for a few days to hunt but takes her academics and sports participation pretty serious so I may be limited to the weekends during her hunt.

We live in the NE corner, ide be happy to share info as well for a kids tag..
