Went in the 13th and came out yesterday. Had very undesirable weather conditions with rain, snow, sloppy snow melt aftermath, fog, fog and more fog. Got a few days that cooperated better than others for glassing and turned up a handful of deer but now legal bucks. Only heard a couple shots opening day a few ridges down but an odd silence through the week. Managed to stay dry the whole week with some new gear I tried this season: Crispi Boots, Sitka Gators, rain pants/jacket and gloves. Glad I brought the Kelty Cosmic 0 Sleeping Bag as temps hit low 30's. Great Hunt, met some nice people on the trail and saw some great scenery when fog lifted enough. Good Luck Everyone.

Holy shizz lol! You got bombed man, I thought we got some snow, but that's just downright gnarly for September.

I just got back the other day.  Weather was mostly great - light rain, then sunny and warm, then some perfect crisp fall weather, followed by more rain.  Didn't see many deer, but did find a nice 4 point at dark, but never relocated in the morning.  In hindsight, it would have been an absolutely brutal pack out, so perhaps it worked out okay.  Had a bull moose walk right through my camp.  Possibly the highlight of the trip....

Good weather for lower numbers next year.  Brutal wet and windy, foggy.  New people who have visions of awesome spotting conditions and yucks around a small camp fire, went home disillusioned!  Good, because these are the usual conditions!

Epic adventure. Rain. Snow. Cold. Gale force winds that tried to rip us off the mountain. Steep. Death marching in the dark. Lots of pain.

That about sums it up.  :chuckle:

Work hard. Hunt hard. Lift other hunters up.

We got pounded with rain, saw no legal shooters, but plenty of deer. We also found a new area in alpine lakes I had never seen.
