HUNT JR's Peaches Ridge Bull Hunt
« on: August 11, 2020, 09:38:31 AM »
It took 16 points, but I managed to pull the tag for the late rifle season for Peaches ridge. As many others have done on this forum before, I want to post the story here as it develops. I really enjoy reading everyone else's story's on here and wanted to contribute. Life has kept me busy for most of the summer but I am finally going to get some time in the unit over the end of this month and a lot during Sept/Oct. I am looking forward to the experience and sharing the journey with you all.

Also, thank you to the people who have already reached out and helped me!

Killer tag! Good luck on your hunt sir  :tup:

Awesome, that's a lucky draw with any number of points.

The big fire should be pumping out tons of feed this year and making glassing many areas you couldn't see before possible.

It should be a great hunt.

Awesome tag to have.  One year I might draw the archery tag.

Really appreciate you and anyone else with quality and OIL permits taking us along for the hunt.  I'll look forward to your posts!
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Finally getting out for the first trip in there this year. Mainly going to be looking at where I want to camp and navigating some of the trails in the areas I have been told about. Not planning on seeing many elk, but that would definitely be a bonus!

Made it out scouting this weekend, did not see any elk, but I heard a few bugles. Definitely not the country I am used to hunting. Typically I hunt the wide open areas with little timber. There seems to be enough open country that glassing up a bull is not out of the question. A little more than a month out!
