White River Bull!!!
« on: June 10, 2021, 10:29:06 PM »
My son drew a White River MF bull tag and he is stoked!!! He was able to get his first elk last year off a youth cow tag and now hopefully he can get his first bull!  Any info anyone is willing to share would be appreciated, feel free to PM me directly if you prefer to keep any of it private.
Thanks!

If they still sell the White Rive Hancock Pass...buy it...I had this tag a few years ago and basically had 2 days to hunt it due to other obligations. I did the backcountry thing for day one, in pouring rain and snow up high, and then decided to drive roads at last light. During the day didn't see a single elk (the week prior I was into bulls up high all day long and had them "figured out"...until the snow and high winds started and pushed them over the ridge and out of the unit). Then on my drive to scout/hunt the Hancock area I spotted a big 5x5 with 2 cows and while trying to figure out how to get to them I came across a small bull right off the road...with the short amount of time it was a no brainer for me and tagged out...hiked 12 miles that day, killed my bull 200 yards from my truck!

Im not sure I would buy that Hancock permit.  I do not think you will need it.

I thought the same thing Crunchy...but I was surprised at the amount of people going up Norse and Boulion and all the elk had pushed over the ridge due to the high winds, it would suck to have that happen again and not have the Hancock pass, because at least then you have somewhere to go, and though it is frustrating with the tribal "hunting" in there at least his son will have a chance at a bull...and it sounds like his son is young, since he drew a youth cow tag recently. Not all kids can hike up those ridges, even the ones along the 74 road. Sucks that the Corral Pass Road is closed as it pushes a lot of people to Norse and other areas.
