I thought I was old ! LOL ! I was born in 57. I have hunted D7 twice, yrs. ago. Saw deer but not a lot. Didn't shoot anything either time. We back packed in but I don't remember the areas. My friend I went with knew the area well.
Yep....like my son says..90 days older than dirt! Celebrated my 70th birthday last year on a wilderness elk hunt in Wy to Thorofare, 33 mile, 9 1/2 ride into camp. Showed them youngsters a thing or two!!!:p
That's pretty awesome. I've always wanted to hunt the Thorofare but have to have a guide. Haven't talked my friend in Cody into it. He has about 8 horses. We were on them when I got my elk in 121 but had to pack it out next day after we found an easier way in. Was glad grizzlies didn't find it . I've read that the Thorofare is the longest contingent wilderness in the lower 48. Awesome. Did you shoot a bull ?
Nope...Too many wolves. Saw wolves every day. Had one nice bull located, but just couldn't get close enough for a decent shot. He was 700+ yards away across a canyon with some cows.
My guide cow called and he started grunting and within 5 minutes there was about 10 or 12 wolves right there. All in all, was a great trip and awsome country, just too damn many wolves.
If I'd have had a tag or 2, could have filled them easily! The really sad thing is that in 6 days of hunting and the rides in and out, only saw ONE deer. Guide told me that they had really taken a hit from the wolves.
Is there any bucks around Mt. Tom?
Ya I have freinds that kill some bucks out of there from time to time, usally alot of hunters around there.
