I hear ya! It is only about a 3 and a half for me I’m in Bakersfield! I still need to get ahold of the biologist I got his number just can’t get through to him. I def plan on at least a few if not more than five scouting trips! My buddy knows a guide up there who said he’d possibly help me. Or at least give me a lay of the land...I’m beyond stoked
The Idaho tag is a sawtooth tag which I’m hearing mixed things about. I’m hearing it’s heavy wolf country and not near as much elk as there used to be. But I still may give it a try I planned on two weeks but might cut it back to one. Who knows my luck may continue on and I might get my controlled hunt in Idaho. A man can dream right... I might head up to scout this weekend, do a little over nighter here’s some pics of some lone pine elk. View attachment 39811 View attachment 39809 View attachment 39810 View attachment 39807

I don’t live far from you, Tehachapi. Congrats on a great tag! Be sure to keep us in the loop and scout for your hunt I’m sure we would all enjoy hearing about it all. You considering going guided ?

I am going high and deep. Plan is to get into some real nasty country miles from trails and roads. I will be between 8-12k feet. We will be backpacking.

Saw a couple nice bulls this weekend and a few cows with them
No monsters yet though. It was neat to see this one in velvet but very weird to see the other bull hadn’t dropped on of his antlers and wasn’t re growing them yet? Don’t get why ones already midway through growing his rack while the other hasn’t even shed both yet??

My 1st year hunting in general and got D11.
I hear I have alot of work ahead of me.
I know I have to put in my due diligence and have already started scouting.
Any veterans have any good tips for D11?

D14 / D16 saving up those points!

I will be in CO hunting cow elk in a month! Never been out there in September so I have no idea what to expect in regards to weather.

If it's anything like Montana or Canada that time of year....Be prepared for 20's to 80's....And wet, snow, or sun....Layering is the key IMO....I have a Gore-Tex packable rain suit that goes everywhere with me....Lots of great gear these days.

Pic is from Sept. 13th last year

Nice! We hunted in the same unit in the 1st week of January this year and harvest a nice cow. It was cold (high of 10) but we knew we knew what we were getting into. The uncertainty of having rain, snow, heat, or cold is adding a fun element. Though I prefer colder than warmer.
