Congrats!

There was a great write up on this hunt a couple years ago.

Use the search feature.   It will be worth the read.    :tup:

Congrats on drawing an awesome tag.

I had the bull tag in 2019. NP becomes a part of you after you experience it in a way that has been rivaled by only Hellís Canyon, in my experiences.

When I have some free time Iíll send you a PM with what I learned in my time there and on a couple hikes in there since.

In the meantime, start getting in shape, buy a good backpacking tent and trekking poles if you donít have them and work on stretching your muzzleloader range out to a couple hundred yards if you can/havenít already.

When I drew it, I didnít have a sense for what an amazing hunt it is.

I drew the tag this year as well! Hunted the area with family members who drew a couple times back when Margaret was draw only. It is huge country so be prepared for a backcountry mountain hunting experience. Be in the best shape possible and be ready to spend a couple days packing out if you are successful. I canít wait!!

Fun fun. Tons of work going solo. I would recommend 3 or 4 guys going with you.

I canít believe I missed that thread, you sir are a Beast! I had me +4 guys.  killed my bull at 10am, made it back to spike camp right at dark, packed up at daylight with camp and the bull and made it back to the truck at noon. It was still lots of work with a good crew but the hard ones are the most memorable! That bull is always a topic of conversation and the occasional middle finger from one of my packer buddies when they are over at the house  :chuckle:

We went up and down the ďhunters trailĒ it knocked off quite a few miles but itís STEEP and not much for switchbacks.

The best part of hunting is making those memories saying letís not do this again.
