'morning All,

I did an early season scouting/filming trip up in Wyo Moose unit 23 earlier this week.

A couple of our Bowsite Family have applied for this unit/Tag and I promised to help them out with scouting and sharing Text pix if any of them draw the tag.

Of course most of the east side of the unit is still gated with deep snow...…..so I spent most of my time on the west side.

Other than being 'cabined up' during the blizzard one day, it was a very productive trip.

Thanks for taking the time to view.

#LovinLife,

Robb

By getting up a little higher, you can see down into all these sweet pockets along the drainage.

In about 3 1/2 hours the creek rose from being just dirt to almost covered from the rising run-off snow melt

Boo-coo elk up higher.

A few mule deer a few with antler nubs showing.

No Yotes, wolves or bears.

Day 3 was a snow, windy cold day so I just actually took the day off and opened the curtains, fired up the fireplace and binge watch Law & Order! haha

Over the years some dang good bulls have come out of this drainage ~~ 38--42 wide would be very do-able.

Hopefully this week on the 9th, I will find out if I am helping out a Bowsiter that applied for this 23 unit.

Thanks for taking the time to view.

Why thank you ~

I've been asked about my bino carrier ( I carry my 10 x 50's in it but sometimes on Sheep hunts my 18 x 56's fit in it too) and What is hanging down from it.

I no longer do the headlamp gig, I went to this type dual light via my FAV Legendary Whitetails company.

1 click and it lights downward, 2 clicks and it lights straight out, 3 clicks and it is dual lights and 4 clicks it's off...………..2 AA batteries and lots of battery life.

Thanks again fella's--------->

Good luck, Robb

PS ~~ Next month I am doing Wyo 31 Bull Elk scouting/lay of the land for a fellow bowsiter from N. Caro., although he is a Tar Heel and I am a Dukie! ha ~~ he drew back in February and is bring his teenage son out for the experience in September to hunt, good guy and Dad.

Good luck to ya Joe!

Those that reach out to me about my bino's, you all have dang good memories.

Yes, I did have the 15 x 56's but I sold them and went out and got the newer 18 x 56's, with the sale ca$h and my Veterans 10% off, I just about broke even money-------->

See my link above.

Good luck, Robb

Thanks for posting the photos/report. That area looked good on GoogleEarth when I was e-scouting last year, but I never made it very far in.
