US12 will now be closed Aug 21 for 2-1/2 weeks for the Wildcat Creek Bridge replacement.
All 12 traffic will be detoured onto the Tieton River Rd during the closure.

I heard it was delayed until next year possibly due to the fire closure ?

I am at a loss I have traveled I dont even know how many miles. I went from the 1000 road closure all the way up to suprise lake I seen some bulls up there but nothing I wanted to pack out and for that matter know i could get out of there and not waste meat as much as i would like a decent bull I dont want to waste any meat so I switched to hunt down off the 1000 road near minnie meadows and have not seen a elk I have put a tone of time in scouting. almost wishing I would have sent the tag back but if anyone would offer some suggestions I am more then willing to take the advise. just came back home for a day to take a shower been out of a pack in camp since friday

Elk numbers in the unit have been down for awhile now.  Was only a 19% success rate for your tag last year.  There were only 32 bulls killed in unit last year combining all of the general and permit seasons. It was one of the worst years I have ever seen and I have been hunting there since the early nineties. I would have to think this year must be a little better but your gonna have to work hard.  I'd try up near Louie way Gap or walk up to Conrad meadows but there are usually a lot of guys back there.

Rode my bike to the washout Saturday to help scout for a quality elk rifle permit a friend has and noticed ALOT of fresh orv/atv tracks on both sides. Pretty quiet in there for animals. Havenít seen any dead elk in anyoneís camps or pickups either. Never been to the Rimrock, I can see why they call it that.
