    Elk leh 7:20 Zona A, feeling defeated out the gate

    Well I'm here, waited for February on a few pieces of advice I gathered,
    packed up and drove snowy highway from hope to Dawson (a??hole puckered for most of it)
    And odds aren't looking so good extremely cold and 4' of snow no sign of an elk anywhere
    we drove up with private land to hunt but 1/2 of it is un accessible (road not plowed)
    and the other has no sign that they have been around at all so now I'm laying awake late night in a motel trying to formulate a new plan and ranting here to whoever you are that read this

    Haha thanks for lettin me vent

    Well I woke up early to go to work but the high winds and blowing snow have drifted everything in, so I guess its a day off. I'll pm you with my phone number if you want to talk, but yeah with all the snow a sled is pretty much a necessity. Or snowshoes and strong muscles! lol

    I have the draw too. I’m on days off and thinking about heading up whenever. I never thought I’d have the time, but we got snowed out of work.

    C'mon boys! Get 'er done! Nobody ever shot an elk in their hotel room and suckers like me are sitting in the LML wishing they had a draw up north.

    Forecast for snow tonight, then it looks clear and cool starting Thursday.

    Good luck!

    Go grab the McElleny? map book at Backcountry, pricey but it could be the difference maker. It shows all the parcels of land and also has the landowners names. What it really works good for is it shows where all the crown land is. Pick some roads that you know are plowed then see what there is for crown, we found lots of places that had crown between two big ranches, that's where we finally connected. We had permission to hunt some awesome ranch property but if the animals aren't there ya gotta go find them. K

    Yup, 80 k winds and fresh snow created huge snow drifts on most roads. If not an active site, it will not get plowed out for a while, if ever.

    The elk have been really holed up in the thick stuff right now, this weekend is supposed to be warmer and sunny, they will start to move again once the wind dies and they can get around better. I am worried for the deer though!!! Really tough in some areas, some fields are wind swept, but huge drifts along the bush edge.

    Cheers
