'morning All,

I did another of my Photo Scouting, lay of the land, access ect. trips for a fellow Bowsiter that drew the Wyo 31 Bull Elk tag for this fall.

Him being from back in N. Carolina, it was a little easier for me to pitch in and help him out.

Plus we also have a few fellow Bowsiters that have applied for Wyo 102 Mule Deer and I have quite a few pix of the SW side of 102

This also is Antelope unit 112

Moose 44

Predator Zone for Wolves

A lot of this Unit is within the Flaming Gorge Lake Recreation Area and allows hunting.

I came in from the Utah side via Sheep Creek Bay and then over thru Dutch John, Utah

Thanks for taking the time to view

For these units it is closer to stay on the Utah side rather than the 50 some mile 1 way trip out of Rock Springs or Green River Wyo

Of course being summer and the tourist season Rates/Fuel ect are kinda High!!

I've figured out how to use my Selfie Stick and use my iPhone XR, kinda tricky at first with the plug in not a match.

Man it was cold riding for the first hour or 2 and I did have my AR with me just in case on Yotes or maybe a stray wolf

I made it up to Aspen Peak area of Little Mountain, covered in Quakies/Aspens but still just budding out with no leaves yet.

I saw a small herd of Velvet Bulls and then off in another direction a Solo Bigger Velvet Bull.

Scattered throughout the unit had these Cattleman Grazing water tanks with some salt blocks.

A guy might be able to pattern an animal's movement to water and set-up an ambush, NO Doubt later in the summer, trail cam's will be on all the solo cedar fence post!! haha

I own a couple of those Surecans, best investment I ever made! Beats the hell out of a regular gas container!

Good luck on the scouting, is Pine Mountain in that unit?

Paul--I'm pretty sure Pine Mountain is southeast of Rock Springs, more in Unit 30/Northeast 32 than in 31.

I'm @ 50" so I didn't have any restrictions on my RZR2 for those that have asked privately.

There are so many 2-tracks, some look more like 1-track!! that an e Assit Mountain Bike would be a wonderful tool to have!

Look offers a 7 x 12 model that tows great and is a perfect fit for the Trail Restriction 50" but has a full size drop down ramp and side door for walking upright in and out.

Fun trip, Some how I did Facetime with the tag holder yesterday afternoon!! How embarrassing to admit! Dang good guy and he is excited.

I can understand why this unit takes Max points to draw, I also can see why the overlap deer unit/102 is also in the Max point type chance.

Kinda surprised at the big Antelope Bucks I saw, as I am in these overlap units most every spring for many years.

Thanks for taking the time to view and I am pretty sure I have answered all question I have received.

#LovinLife,

Robb

PS ~~ Next month will be Nv 111-113 as a couple of fellow bowsiters have drawn either, Antelope, Muley or Elk bow tags and I have a personal interest! ha

As it has been 3 years since my last hunt in 111-113 and I need to get myself an update.
