    I thought I was old ! LOL ! I was born in 57. I have hunted D7 twice, yrs. ago. Saw deer but not a lot. Didn't shoot anything either time. We back packed in but I don't remember the areas. My friend I went with knew the area well.

    That's pretty awesome. I've always wanted to hunt the Thorofare but have to have a guide. Haven't talked my friend in Cody into it. He has about 8 horses. We were on them when I got my elk in 121 but had to pack it out next day after we found an easier way in. Was glad grizzlies didn't find it . I've read that the Thorofare is the longest contingent wilderness in the lower 48. Awesome. Did you shoot a bull ?

    Nope...Too many wolves. Saw wolves every day. Had one nice bull located, but just couldn't get close enough for a decent shot. He was 700+ yards away across a canyon with some cows.
    My guide cow called and he started grunting and within 5 minutes there was about 10 or 12 wolves right there. All in all, was a great trip and awsome country, just too damn many wolves.

    That sucks... Need some wolf tags given for that area pronto. I've seen wolves in the South Fork of Shoeshone near Cody all the way back to 2001 ! They've killed some there that were going after rancher's cattle. Didn't take them long to get from the Park to there...That's a shame CC. Sorry to hear.

    If I'd have had a tag or 2, could have filled them easily! The really sad thing is that in 6 days of hunting and the rides in and out, only saw ONE deer. Guide told me that they had really taken a hit from the wolves.
