'morning All,

Seems strange to be doing my yearly JH thread but it's been a year already.

Low 30's during the day and mid-20' @ night made it rather warmer than normal this year.

Very little snow around and the NER was void again this year on Elk/Buff roaming around. Third year in a row it's been like this on the south end. I think I got my last harvest off the south end 4 years ago.....

Thanks for taking the time to view All.

Last year, 1 morning at the South entrance parking area, all of a sudden Tag-n-Drag horse trailers and a few other trucks started pulling in just as I was fixin' to hike into my spot in the dark.

A small herd of Buff had come onto the South end over night.

I didn't want anything to do with that crowd as I'm used to being alone in the early morning other than my bud from Thayne if he has a P-slip.

I went in after them just to watch-----man-O-man...... A guy and his wife got a nice bull, hunting just them and I think she had the tag and shot----I hung back and just 'glassed' the action!

Tag-n-Drag guys sure are helpful to others

I didn't get my normal cabin as some gal from North Dakota had it long term lease for 90 days, I did talk to her and she was a nice person doing some type of contract office work for some firm in JH.

I stayed in my back up lil' cabin

That afternoon 'breeze' had a bite to it!

What's the "Tag N Drag"?

Good luck Robb.. this drought is awful.. all we can do is hope and pray that we get moisture or the west is going up in more flames

Tag N Drag runs outfitting on the NER. They cane be a real pain, well their guides can be, but their service is well worth the price. They will retrieve and gut your animal for you, the service is great for bison as the hunter does not have to worry about brucellosis issues when gutting.

Nice to hear some bison moved over for the hunters.

Lots of elk in the area but not on the NER.

This herd was hangin' on the south end of Blacktail Butte.

That cow looks like she has 2 different collars on her neck, green and then a smaller whitish one

Great pictures! Hard to believe how little snow we have in Colorado this late in the year. Looks like Wyoming has the same thing going on. Hopefully this dry fall will let the critters go into the winter in good shape after the rut.

I think it was the year Turk drew his Buff tag that they started allowing full parking access @ this gate to hunt in on foot/horseback as it was just for retrieval before that year.

2 years ago, they started allowing Bowhunters to use this fishing access gate to hunt on the newer enlarged Bow Only area on the South end/western boundary.

The only downside is that most of the time during this time of year, the dominant breeze is from the north and makes it tough to spot-n-stalk--------->

No wind in your face option
