I pulled a DM549 cow tag for Homer. Luckily I live in the area and It's not difficult to get out. I have been putting in my time but this has been more of a challenge than anticipated. I'm not using an ATV and I've done some spotting and some stand hunting and calling.
F&G put this hunt later in the season so I wasn't sure what to expect but I thought I would surly see more lone cows. I guess seeing so many with calves is a good thing for our area... but a little on the frustrating side. At least I'm seeing them. I seem to walk up on a few in the alders and they push deep in or give me the slip on the other side of the patch... lol. That happened quite a bit this week. I did some calling and had a bull sneak up behind me within 20 yards or so ( the wind was blowing) I only knew he was there when he snorted and jumped when he realized what I was sitting in the grass. Scared the daylights out of both of us!
Wish me luck I have till the 20th. I'll report back when I connect.
Just glad to be out doing it...
