    there is enough there that a guy wouldnt have to grab a handfull and rub it around. You could lay down and squirm around for a while to get stunk up. I hope I am not the only one that rubs elk poop on myself in the woods?

    I got this book for Christmas in 1950. I wore it out reading it.

    I just bought the kindle edition. Looks like a GREAT book.

    It's an old book, but a lot of it can still be applied today.

    I have noticed that a little bit as well in the last couple of years. I know this won't help you because you have horses but I pick area with little to no trails. Most people are afraid or at least reluctant to bush whack into an area. I only go in about 5 but it is steep as hell and only one faint trail leads to the basins I hunt.
    A bad day in the woods is better than a good day at work.

    I've been a backpack hunter my entire life. 10 miles is my limit. I try and avoid horse hunters so I get off trail at least a mile with my spike camp. I solo hunt and 10 miles pushes me to my limits. If you are in on horses further than that, I doubt you will run into any backpack hunters. Although there are exceptions, keep in mind that a guy willing to pack his camp on his back and spend 3 or 4 days hunting the backcountry and being willing to pack his game out on his back, then return for his camp is more likely than not, a quality hunter.

    one of the biggest bulls ive seen and have been hunting the last 3 years ruts no more than 2 miles from a town and no more than 1 mile from the rd. infact this year we caught him in an apple orchard behind a friends cabin. he is on blm land and its not land locked. have never seen a soul in there during september, october deer hunt is a diff story but during september everyone hikes several miles past this beast and hes never alone, allways has sat bulls and cows. also, only at 6k elevation. look where everyone passes, as has been said.
