That is pretty fortunate! Congratulations. I don't know anything specific, but the last few super hunt winners I am aware of have found some nice ones out in the Owyhee units.

Congrats. I think a 350" bull is a trophy for most. I've hunted in the Swan Valley area for years and have never seen a bull over 320 there. What are the details of the tag you drew?

Ya it is! I've been all over those mountains.

Have you ever been to Arco? I hear there are some monsters there.

From what I read...

40/42 is the spot to be. Rifle/rut. Opens sept.25...

in order... 40, 46, 54, 44-1, 66A-1

good luck, maybe I should start putting in for the superhunt!
