    Cool Picture. It says it was taken on April 3, 2011. I think he has his date mixed up. Thanks for sharing and good luck hunting this year.

    Has to be 16B, I don't know of any where else in the state that would hold this many bulls in groups like that. Man, the predator controll program is really working.

    I have seen that in Sept and it was very depressing. 7 bulls in one swampy clearing, not one of them legal! All little dinker paddles with the biggest about a 45" er with salad forks. I was literally in bow range of with the whole group around me for better than an hour. I

A buddy cut a small trail in there years ago despite me urging him to just walk in and then someone found it, and told someone, who told someone. My cousin went back in there last year and said he only saw one little paddle bull and probably 8 other hunters with new 2x4 tree stands on every third tree. Oh, well so it goes in the great land.

    Sarcasm ignored.... cousin got one, other cousins wife shot a cow (valley cow tag) and buddy got a bull all in 2007-2008. I saw the large group in 2009 but I didn't get back from the sand box till Sep 12th and anything legal was long since in someones freezer. 2010 I spent back in the sand box and word from my family is it's not even worth the trip, which sucks because it it ridiculously close to home.

    I have heard of similar groups in the alpine south of the Rex trail and I saw 5 bulls together in Dec 2009 north of Sutton while out on the sled. Seemed odd at the time because they were way up high. There were a few scrub willow barely poking up through the snow in a little draw but beyond that I wonder what they were eating way up there. Any higher and they would have been hanging out with the sheep. The sheep vid that was posted recently from the brooks sure made it look like a good group of bulls were hanging out way up high during the winter considering the sheds.
