Thinking of heading north this weekend for a shot at antlerless moose. I see that zone 4 is now closed, so zone 5 it is. Does anyone know-
1. Trail conditions. Has the warm weather destroyed the snow, or is it still OK for snowmachines?
2. Access routes. To get to zone 5 via the Rex trail, you have to cross the Wood River. From the dogleg in the Rex around the Gold King Creek crossing, can a guy leave the Rex and go straight East along the foothills to the Wood, or is there lots of obstacles? On the map it is shorter, but is it worth it?
3. Where are the moose in zone 5? Early reports had them up in the foothills, but that may have been for zone 4.
4. What condition are the river crossings in?
Thanks for the help. We plan to go in Friday am and be out Sat night... (I know, a lot of riding and probably not much hunting) When we get back, will post info for those who might go between then and the 29th when the season closes. WW
