    Tell us a joke Joe. That's the tradition for first timers her on the site.

    Don't mind some of the guys here, they can be a bit grumpy.

    As a few here have mentioned, my suggestion before you head out is to contact the local biologist. The reason a lot of those LEH are in place is because ministry has requested them due to farmers complaining of crop loss. Along with the biologists, another suggestion would be to track down the local conservation officer. We did both of those things when we had a draw in the Christian valley and it certainly was beneficial. Regardless of both of those things, you will have to knock on doors. That is where we got a huge variety of responses from a farmer using his tractor to pick up a shot elk at one extreme to another telling us to get off the property. When you get a receptive property owner, be sure to ask if they are aware of any other property owners that may also be willing to help you out. Be sure to thank any owners that are willing to help. We purchased a nice bottle of scotch for the gentleman that helped us. We still stop by when we are in the area to chat. Good luck on your hunt.
    There was a time I thought all parties that cared for wildlife and habitat conservation could find common ground. I was wrong. Adapt....

    Never mind knocking on doors in Shelly, its not in 7-17! Your draw is further east, closer to McBride! moosin
