You guys who live in wy are lucky men. I love Wyoming but just points for me this year in your great state. I hope the winter is kind to you and the wildlife this winter. I am a little worried from what I have read.

Yeah, it's been a pretty tough winter. I've seen elk in low areas where I've never seen them before. Life is hard for the deer also right now. I think a lot of our resident herd would be winterkill if they haven't been feeding in our fields. I can't wait for it to warm up!

Hahaha, you got it. Basin, better known as 9er country a.k.a. Big Horn County, (I only claim the south end). Or... about 45 minutes from Cody. The elk I was talking about were above Shell. And there are 40-50 mulies that are feeding on our farm til almost high noon. That's unheard of.

I think traffic has killed more deer around here than winter.

9ers have nothing on us CCCSers. Although I did marry a 9er....

Had lunch at elk view this Sunday and elk where still low just out of Dayton. Camper is still up at Bear from snowmobile season. Don't think I will be able to get it untill next month.

Went shed hunting near Farson the other day and saw 12 dead mulies within the first 15 minutes of walking around, mostly fawns. I think the winter was pretty tough on the deer.

Finally warming up, although it was 27 this morning. I think the elk are going to drop their fawns on the winter grounds this year. I haven't heard how the herds faired, has anyone else?

With all the moisture, I am looking forward to the antler growth.
