Just waiting for the magic to start happening. I have heard 2 bugles but nothing consistent yet. Anybody else hearing them tune off much yet?

Was in the Challis National Forest for the first week and they let loose on Wenesday and continued for the rest of the time I was there.

Heard Bulls last weekend though I didn't have a tag. Saw Bulls hanging out together without cows, which seemed a little weird, though.

I'm always amazed what shows up when I don't have a tag too :) were you hunting deer Nijimasu ? I'm stuck at work a few more days so I'm living through the troops out there. Let's hear some stories.

Yes, I was deer hunting, introducing a friend to archery, and hunting with my daughter.tthe unit we were hunting in is pretty tough to draw an elk tag in, so of course I had them talking all around me, and also stumbled into a small group of very respectable bulls while sneaking on some deer. I also had an early season antelope tag that closed a couple weeks ago. And of course, I finally stumbled into big antelope herds the day after the tag expired.

My friend managed to take a mulie doe with his first ever bow shot in the woods, which was pretty cool, and I managed a half-mile spot and stalk on a forkie, except it turned into a doe too, after I made the stalk. I was proud of myself for getting to 30 yards in open sage, so I whacked her anyway.

I suppose it's too late to scout for an elk spot for this year. Oh well, there's always next year. Best of luck, it seems like a good year for animals out there. Here's the doe I killed.

Here's the one my friend who started bowhunting this year took with his first ever shot.The animal's face looks dirty, but just because she crashed in the ashes of a controlled burn.

No Bugles heard last 3 days. Mostly the elk were hunkered down with all the rain and snow. I saw elk of all places hitting a waterhole or seep. Hanging a treestand and hunting Monday through Wednesday. Hoping for that moment to harvest some fresh back straps!!
