It's close to fall and things are cooling down. The bull elk are coming out of hiding and looking for a mate. I suspect, the Bison are close to the end of breeding!
We had our first Management Elk hunter, and the weather was actually freezing! Or, maybe I'm just not used to going from 90 degrees to 40 degrees overnight! Our hunt was successful and the Bull Elk were out enjoying the cool morning. I have to admit that I was a bit worried. I've been doing morning tours and have not seen even one bull elk in at least 3 weeks. Just shows you that the weather is very critical. They do not come out unless it is cooler, and that's usually after dark or before daylight.
We were hurt with the loss of non-resident turkey hunters in April and May, but the entire summer has been slammed with travelers! Now we are headed into one of our busiest hunting season ever! Thanks to our return B&B guests and hunters! You truly help our business thrive and we love having you back! A lodge alive is worth the drive!
