The majority are from the Jackson Hole area on up into Yellowstone, some are from across the Tetons in ID and the birds are in the San Luis Valley.

Who did you go on your snowmobile trip into yellowstone with? Just curious as I was a guide last season. There are some great bulls out here this year on the refuge, but the largest one out there is in the far back corner where no sleigh rides or cars can see him. I was sent a picture, taken by the game biologist, and he is a true MONSTER!

The Yellowstone tour was something Safaris (can't remember the name), the separate snowmobile trip that didn't make it into Yellowstone was guided by Jason Williams. I saw one big bull in the refuge that was way off the road and digitscope pics didn't turn out well. We stayed at love ridge & could set the spotters up and see quite a bit.

Sounds about right. Scenic Safaris...Did you also do the Gros Vente tour? that was one of my favorite sled tours to guide because of the amount of animals. There are roughly 200+ bulls that hang out way in the back of the refuge off the buttes that nobody gets to see to often. Looks like you were here during one of the nice weather stretches which always makes looking for animals out here more enjoyable.

I believe it was in the Gross Ventre wilderness area, we went up to Moran and rode sleds from there south. Actually saw a couple wolves on that trip and a bunch of cow/calf pairs. The Cali couple on the tour thought it (wolves) were the most magical thing they'd ever seen.......Past those 2 tours I burnt a lot of fuel through the rental vehicle going around and looking. I was so ticked because I finally found some good muley bucks the last evening we were there and I just didn't have enough light to shoot pics. One of them was a stud NT and another was a buck that had inlines that would put him around 200".

That is Palisades. The Tetons look better from Driggs than from Jackson. IMO

I was in Jackson this weekend. Attended the World Championship Snowmobile Hill Climbs. I spent a little time at the refuge. There was a great looking herd. Some real nice bulls. A few of them had shed. I can't wait till May 1st!!!

Oooo I love those mountains! How has the elk hunting been the last couple years? It's been about 3 since I was there last.

Work got in the way.I didn't get to hunt it last season but I had a friend that shot a nice bull on the other side of the river. He shot a 6' cinnamon bear off the kill site next morning while he was hiking in to pack out the last few quarters.

Very cool. I've seen a few black bears there swimming across the res. I used to be friends with the guys that used to own Huskys. Used to be call the Timber Wolf Resort. We would stay there at the cabins.

I think so too. They seem to stick out a lot more and there are less people to deal with.

That's from either an '04 or '05 trip, forget exactly when I got that first camera. I used photostitch? that came with the canon software pkg with the cam(iirc) to piece pics together.

Randy was the original owner or Husky's and now owns it again. In my opinion he is the best contact to have in Swan Valley. The Idaho Fish And Game Warden is for the area is a high school friend of mine. If you want to know more or if you want his number PM me he is a great source of info for the area.

Yes. I have met him once years ago. Ya I agree a great resource for sure. My friend that bought if from him remodeled the whole place then ran it into the ground. To bad cause it was a great place for him to raise his kids.
