My partner and i scouted 506 last year before everything was shut down for fire danger. We saw probably 8-10 bulls in 3 days and not one was above a big 4x4. they had some growing to do still but nothing near even 200.

Damn I am in.  10 bulls in 3 days!!  It's going to be a Hunt-Wa Bonanza, a legit circus.  The Blues has nothing on the 506.
It's a TIKKA thing..., you may not understand.

270 inch bulls! A few tips? ;) :dunno: ;) :dunno: ;) :dunno: ;) :dunno:
You know your hunt went well when you had a shot that was unethical and you never took it, even if you never got your bull.

I had 3 bulls in my truck this year from down that way. They all didn’t add up to 270 and we never saw one close.

506 has been slower than ever the last few years due to the hoof rot. Williams Creek (673) seems to hold the most stable elk population in the sw at the moment. purchase an AFM permit and get up high, not alot of big bulls but plenty of legal bulls up there.

What do u all think of the $435 permit fossel creek gate key  sells in 506?
A $350 Weyerhaeuser access permit is required, but they're sold out.

You've been in Fossil Creek before.  You asked the same question a few years ago, and got a lot of good info from that post.  I never did get a response to my PM after helping either.  Just sayin'.

Sounds like a trophy area. I better start hunting down there because it doesn't require a draw!
