LICENSES ARE AVAILABLE FOR 2013 SEASON
Bullseye Outfitting in Trout Creek, Montana:
We are having a very early spring here, it seems to be 3 to 4 weeks
early. This will make for some good bear hunting in a few weeks, looking
forward to that.
The winter was very mild, only had to plow the drive way once, and had
about 8 inches of snow in the yard at once. The snow has been gone in
the yard for quite some time now. The snow in the high country is 90% of
normal, so we will have a little run-off this spring.
The lion hunting was good, as most of the days that I loaded the hounds
I could find a track to chase, ended up treeing 15 lions. This is one of
my pastimes in the winter, and also keeps me in shape.
There may be some changes in the lion seasons that would make it easier
for a nonresident to
get a tag. If you are interested in getting a lion I will be posting any
changes on the web page to keep you informed.
The mild winter and early spring will be excellent for the wildlife here
in the Lower Clark Fork Valley. This time of year the elk and deer are
real visible, it enables me to get a real good idea of what is out there
for game populations, reproduction, and bull numbers.
Everything looks really good right now for a great fall hunting season.
Opportunities will definitely be there for bull elk and some good bucks.
Check out the antler shed to the right and imagine how big he will be
This time of year I am always on the move looking for something, whether
itís bull elk, turkeys or maybe scouting an area that I havenít hunted
Itís not uncommon to see a couple hundred head of elk and just as many
deer on a morning excursion. The ingredients are there for exceptional
horn growth by fall. You can tell by the sheds found one morning that
there are plenty of animals.
I would also like to mention that the elk and deer combo-license
did not sell out and there will be quite a few available licenses. I will know more next week as the draw should be
official on Monday, April 22nd. At that time I should have a number.
What this means is that if you are interested in putting together a
hunting trip for this fall, itís still possible. More than likely these
licenses will be available through the summer.
You have probably noticed that we have a Facebook page setup, this will
be another way to communicate. It will take a little time for me to get
it up to a 100%, but I will be working to expand my knowledge on this
subject. For those of you that know me, you know that Iím more of a
hunter woodsman type of person than a computer dude.
This pretty much hits the high spots for now, Give me a call or email me
if you have any questions.
