Just got home from General Muzzle season. Saw two 6 points and a raghorn 4 point and over 60 cows. All advice given is good. Work the steep side hills, and drainages, there are people driving all over in there during Muzzle so rifle season should be an absolute zoo. Pray for snow and get as far away from the roads as you can. It's tough because it seems like there is roads everywhere. Study google earth.

Just watched a 6◊7 come out of the bowl I'm sitting over. Look where you think people drive right past and don't think there's elk :twocents:.

Naches, tie him up to a sage brush for me, I'm on my way. :chuckle:

My cameras took pictures of a half dozen 4-6 pt bulls with the majority being 6.  In over a thousand pictures, not one of a spike bull. Looks it will be tough to find a spike.
Gathering is easy. Hunting is a challenge.

Spikes are there. It sounds like you located a mature bachelor bull sanctuary. Spikes tend to stay near their familiar areas the 1st year they get the boot, then as they mature and join older bulls to get away from cows & crowds.

Things will get more interesting come Saturday morning, once the hunters get there and start kicking the animals out of their hiding spots.  There are plenty of good bulls in Bethel, right now they are laying low after Archery, Muzzle-loader and Quality bull tags.

End up eating the tag? Here's a bull in an area I mentioned to look in.
