Re: Benezett

I was up Saturday and it was not good for me. Saw maybe 1/2 or so cows. No bulls in Bzette area. Only bull I saw was in the Q. Hiked back to saddle first thing and there was nothing.

Have seen reports that Sunday evening was pretty good though. Hit & miss, I missed.

Re: Benezett

Things are way off this year that's for sure. I was in the Saddle Sunday PM and Monday AM and it was dead. Only saw a couple bulls, one was a spike and one nice bull that I only saw for a very short time. They're just not using that whole area this year for some reason. There's a few bulls around the new parking lot, one of which is Moose, and 1 or 2 by the Woodring farm. I caught some of the action at the VC yesterday AM including a glimpse of Tippy, that's about the best thing going on right now. Hope it changes for the better soon. Also very few calves seen as well, not sure what's going on there either.

Re: Benezett

Right now it seems like the Visitor Center is your best bet for elk photos. Now that I have said that though, it will go dead. LOL

Re: Benezett

Was reading where Dewey road was a real mess last night. People stopping on the road, no traffic moving.
