Just curious, are you going to be taking advantage of our august bear opener now for your guided hunts?

Yes, we already have and will expand on that next year.

One of the guides called a big herd bull to within 67 yards last night, unfortunately due to other elk in the way the hunter was pinned down and couldn't get closer and the herd bull wasn't coming any closer. Suddenly they spotted a 5x5 satellite bull that had snuck in the backside, the hunter turned but miscalculated distance and shot low and missed, the 2nd arrow found home, they tracked the bull quite a ways but just at dark they saw him still on his feet so they backed off and started hiking out the lower route to let him hopefully bed down over night, I picked them up at 11pm. This morning we took them back to the top where they are parked to hike back in to where they last saw the bull. Unfortunately we had a heavy lightning storm and even snow on the tops overnight, but hopefully they can find the bull even though the rain probably washed away all the blood. Fingers crossed.

The other two guides and hunters are back after the other bulls they saw and the bulls missed yesterday. Fingers crossed on both hands for better luck today! The weather change as usual totally changed this hunt, we went from struggling to get an answer, now we are all over lots of bulls and they are calling good, all the stars just need to line up so that we are packing out meat!

Thanks Machias!  :tup:

It rained hard overnight, they searched quite a while the next morning but didn't find the bull the next day. The big herd bull took his cows and disappeared, we still haven't found him again. Two other bulls were called in close range the next day but the hunters couldn't get clear shots. The next day after that we called in a 4x4 that we couldn't get a shot and saw the bull was wounded s few days before, he had moved two big drainages to the north, he seems to be doing ok, he'll probably heal up and maybe we will get on him again. Last night on the last day of the hunt we called in another bull to the one hunter who hadn't had a shot yet, we had three guided hunters in camp, but he didn't see the bull, Russ the guide showed him the cell phone video of the bull and unfortunately that was the end of that hunt. No kills, but lots of calling action and some opportunities that didn't work out.
