'morning All,

I'm combining my mid-May and early June Wyoming trips into 1 thread this year.

I'm helping out 2 ~~ 26 Bull moose tag holders, 1 from my home state and another fellow from northwest Wyoming.

Plus a couple of fellow Non-Ressy's with Gen elk tags.

I hit 29k miles on my 2020 JPGladiator on the mid May trip driving up.

Thanks for taking the time to view All.

#Lovin'Life,

Robb

Between the 2 trips this Spring, I went up many drainages and then bushwacked off into side canyons/draws.

I came across this 'uge Beaver Dam

I am really tempted to fly out to the Bighorns and scout Unit 37 for my fall elk archery hunt. Maybe do a little fishing while there. Just so much going on.

Look forward to these trips of yours. Hope that you don't find much winter kill this year. Nice that your seeing some young bulls. I am planning some scouting a little later this summer in Colorado. Best of luck to you, Badbull

Back in the day, I stayed here many nights. In Cokeville

The lil cutie pie cowgirl that ran the place told me the actual owner was from Pa. and his name was Joe.

As our Bowsite grew and we got many new members from around our USA, I started to wonder if Mule Power /Joe was the owner.

Thanks Robb......I am hoping to run some of the roads and jump out and hike around a bit up in Unit 11 to scout for my buddy's type 9 tag hunt this fall. I imagine still alot of snow on the forest service roads up in the Snowy Mtns. I am actually excited by the prospect of a night or two out in my hammock in the high country.

Here is the best I can do for those axing about ATV use.

I don't use mine for hunting, so I don't have any real knowledge about them in Wyoming.

See my link above.

Good luck, Robb

Well I found a chit load of elk......cows and calves.....more than I have seen outside rocky mountain park in Moraine Park....had to have seen over 40 elk in two separate herds. Unfortunately they were in unit 10 and my buddy has a tag for unit 11..........the search continues!
