Six of us were up this weekend battling the still extremely bad roads more to locate some bulls for the next couple of weekends than actually expecting to find horns as it is a touch early yet. We did talk about the bad winter and that just maybe that would have the horns off earlier. We covered a lot of ground, saw a lot of bulls almost all of which were still carrying.....almost all!! Here's Colton Bollman with what we think might be the first elk shed of 2014. Does he look happy?

More pics of the trip to follow.

Yep, anywhere there is public property that holds elk, or on private property where you have permission.

I did A LOT of walking today and nothing. Didn't even see an elk till I got back to 'civilization'. lol From the number of bootprints in the snow they're probably getting them as soon as they hit the ground. jestera

Snow is fine for elk sheds. They are finding a few now but most bulls still holding both.
