The wife and I were pretty excited about her drawing a cow moose tag in 684 but the more web research we have done, the less appealing the hunt becomes. Our plan is to, as I'm sure is similar to others, is to ride in on the Rex trail on 4 wheelers with satellite camp and hunt once in the area. I have read a few articles, read the stats and talked with DNR about the cow hunt and the Rex Trail condition, and all seems a bit bleak. I was hoping that maybe someone out there has some new or more recent experience with the hunt and/or trail that could be helpful or even entertaining to read. Any opinions or even suggestions that may make help on the planning of this hunt.
For as far as I can tell at this point, our hunting area is accessed by the Rex Trail and is about 17 miles of nasty deep muddy swamp conditions to an area that has been overhunted and burned out in the recent years. Like I said, bleak! Anyone have something to add to this.
