I'm hoping to get in there and scout one more time before my rifle hunt starts.

Wow.  This thread came to a screeching halt.  Any other Alkali tag holders out there with any updates?  I'll be over mid October for my cow hunt.  Heading to Idaho for the rifle season first.

I have been busy helping friends/family with muzzy hunting and getting ready to head to Montana. I haven't heard much from the others that are out there, they opened up some more units but still seems a little slow. The last I knew there were only 2 bulls and a cow taken out, i'm sure someone that has been there recently can chime in......

I hunted the past two weeks. It was nice they opened a few more areas up out there. I was looking for a respectable bull. No rag horns. The luck Iíve had on this trip is the worst Iíve ever had hunting. One morning I had a shot at a 320 6x6 at 156 yards. Which I consider a chip shot. There was a barbed wire fence running down the hill and I hit a strand of wire and missed. What are the odds of that? Later that night I got on a 350 class bull at 80 yards at last light And got a round in him. He went up to the ridge with a cow pushing him up the hill. He was not looking good. Went back the next day and looked all day for him with no luck. Saw all the bulls and cows he was with and he was no longer around. That kind of put a real sour taste in my mouth. Did probably 10 miles searching and those breaks in there are no joke. Then on Sunday I ran into a master hunter who saw a nice bull the night before down in a heavily tall sage brush draw. I set up the spotter and couldnít see anything. I dove off anyways. Got down in the and the sage was up there around 8í tall. Bumped a 300 class 6 point that stood broadside on the hill at 50 yards. I squeezed the trigger and click. My secondary safety had screwed itself down from driving those great roads in there. By the time I got it squared away Bull was 270 yards. Yep terrible luck for me this year. Kinda hard to swallow waiting 13 years for a bull tag. I had some great opportunities at good bulls. I might have a little time to get back out this weekend. Maybe I will cross paths with a raghorn and everything will go just right  :chuckle:

Last day bull with 20 minutes of shooting light left. What a roller coaster ride of a hunt. Itís not the biggest bull out there but with the way things played out with this hunt I could not be any happier!
