Igotanewknee, have you guys hit the 18.5 mile area? I was told the elk hang out there all year long. And that road that goes to Lester, about 1 or 2 miles after smay creek, is also nice. Good luck, hope you guys get one!

 :yeah:

15-18 is where I have been the most
any luck?? What are you going after RB?

I have a cow tag and no Elk yet work tomorrow and will be down friday for the last day of the season.
Good Luck Ryan hoping you some success!!!

Well, my daughter got it done today with a couple hours to spare. She shot a 4x5 that was with a herd of 12 cows. It was raining and snowing and all around blustery. We had gotten soaking wet a couple times hiking around down by the walk in area, so decided to take a ride up to a clear cut on the eastern side of smay creek while warming up in the truck. We came around a corner into the clear cuts when my buddy saw the elk. They started to run but stopped and gave her a shot. First shot a clean miss, second shot dropped it.
My buddy and I started quartering it(his first try at it, and me not much help... bad back, knees and hands), while my daughter started taking the quarters up to the truck, which was a couple hundred yards away. She hauled 3 quarters and the trimmings.
All I can say is I'm pretty damn proud of her.
We both got our trophy on this hunt and we both couldn't be happier!!

I need to thank my buddies Jon and Bobby for all their help, my son and daughter for the work they put in, the inspectors at the watershed for their help, and everyone on here for their input and encouragement. Again, a great week and some good times. Thank you all...

The inspectors were so helpful and just wanted everyone to have a successful hunt. They were over the top excited for me and helped grab meat and gave us a lift back to my truck on last load. It was a great experience for sure.

 :yeah:

A good time was had by all. I wish we had the whole crew with us so we could have gotten it out faster, but the 3 of us got it handled. My buddy Jon, who was with us the 1st two mornings, was helping skin out the skull today. He said this elk looked like the one she couldn't get on to the first day. The elk were on a clear cut that was only about a half mile or so away from the one from the 1st morning. Maybe it was the same one and it was meant to be.
Again,  tickled pink with the 2 elk.
