from Bullseye Outfitting:
I'm sure that a lot of you are wondering about the wild
fires that have been burning here in Montana. the big fires
that have been burning since July are east of us about 120
miles, so they have not effected us at all.
The Wednesday before archery season started , a lightning
storm went thru here and started some fires these fires
burned about 12,000 acres which is a very small amount of
land in comparison to what we are able to hunt.
These fires will actually benefit the elk herds in the area
and us as hunters also. The vegetation that regrows in these
burns is the best feed that elk can find. also it opens up
the country and makes it easier to spot game.
These fires did effect us some for archery season as it was
very hot and smoky for the first couple of weeks. However
it didn't keep us from getting some nice bulls and we had a
very successful archery season.
Throughout the season we called in some really nice bulls.
The guys that came really did a good job of shooting, and
all of the bulls that were shot at went down with in sight
or we heard them crash when they fell.
As always there is a lot of effort goes into bugle hunting
, but it is real rewarding when the action is hot and also
Tucker Rigney had the closest encounter, he had a cow elk
walk up to him and lick the quiver on his bow, he said he
thought she was going to step on his foot. She was in heat
and went back up to the herd. A few minutes later she came
back down to the call and a bull followed her, they ran by
tucker on the same trail he was standing in and about
knocked him over. Tucker kept his composure and made a great
shot when the bull stopped at 11 yards. It was an
unbelievable morning of hunting.
Overall, the bull numbers are very good here and on the
increase, so we are expecting
really good hunting here in rifle season which will start
here in a week or so.
And remember, we take a limited number of hunters to insure
a quality experience while you are here . If you are looking
for a big game hunt give us a call and we would be more than
happy to talk to you about what we have to offer and how we
conduct our hunts.
Enjoy the pictures of the guys and their bulls, they
definitely earned them.
