As I mentioned yesterday, poor viewing conditions could turn on a dime in modern gun season. That is exactly what happened.
The big news is a large herd that showed up this morning. I would say it is the largest I have seen this year and it is being led by Godzilla, one of the huge bulls. They are in the 43/21 field. My guess is that they were moved in by deer hunters. Another small herd was in the field just south of the elk pullout this morning.
Expect herds to move around a lot during whitetail gun season. The best course is to check the whole valley during this time. We are also in a weather change and that impacts the movements.
Watch out for whitetail deer, they are running everywhere now.
