Week 1 we had 3 guided elk hunters in camp the first week and 3 non-guided elk hunters. Out of our 3 Non- guided we harvested 1 bull, had one bull missed and the third hunter did not have an opportunity. So we were 2 out of 3 on shot opportunities and 1 out of 3 on harvests for our non-guided hunters. On the guided hunters…All three saw bulls, 1 client had two misses on a nice bull, one client passed up two opportunities on cows under 20 yards and the third client did not have a shot opportunity.
Week 2 we had 3 guided elk hunters in camp and all three saw bear, deer, turkey and elk. The great news is all three also shot nice bull elk. Making week 2 an awesome week all around.
Week 3 we had 8 Elk hunters in camp with multiple tags for different species. We had 1 Bull killed and a few other close calls on elk. This group also killed one bear, one 4 x 4 mule deer and 2 Antelope. We had one bull missed, one bear missed and a few other misses on antelope and turkey. All in all a fun week.
Week 4 We had four guided elk hunters and 2 non-guided hunters. Our guided hunters all saw multiple bulls including a 12 yard encounter with a big 6 x 6. Now elk were taken, but two cows were passed on hunter 25 yards. One of the clients had a bear tag also and missed a bear at 22 yards. Our 2 non- guided hunters had a close call on their first day. One missed a bull under 25 yards and that same afternoon they were on a group with a nice herd bull. Unfortunately, they did not close the deal.
Last week was filled with close calls. Out of 6 guided elk hunters, we killed on elk, had on missed and all clients saw bulls. Some real close calls. Our bear hunting was slow and unfortunately our last bear hunter was not successful although one bear was seen
