They got a lot of water and beyond stuff just being washed out the dirt around here gets really bad when its wet. There are 2 roads that look like they would get me in there that I have never been on off the highway on the east side but it sounds like that side got the worst of it and the highway was closed. The Highway will probably be back open fast but those dirt roads may be washed out or really soft in areas. I will probably head over there anyway to see if we can get in. I may just have to leave the truck further out and take the SXS in. If I was going alone I would make it work but this was supposed to be a camping trip with the wife and dog as well so she wanted to get into the campground. I have 3 more weekends I will be out there before the opener as well so while I want to get in there this weekend its not critical to my plans.That is a bummer! Any other areas you can get to and at least scout another area for now?
I was having fun. There are deer about everywhere you look. If anyone ever has the chance to spend some time in there I recommend grabbing a camera and doing it. I can only imagine what it must be like in November with so many bucks.Amazing! What a special place to be in and experience. You've got to be having the time of your life.
Back from another trip. This one was a little messed up by the weather. This morning the mountains were under some heavy fog. I was able to get some glassing in on a few areas but the rest were not visible. I was down on the soiuth end and its a completely different experience down there. The area all burned a while back and is thick with oak brush. The area is also a lot more spread out. I am getting a little dissapointed in what I have seen so far. Granted I have only been over there a couple of days. That group I found last week is by far the best but it was right by the main campground so I am sure a few guys will be there trying to find them. I plan to be back over there Saturday afternoon if not Saturday morning. The opener is on Wednesday. That gives me 3-4 days of scouting and then the 9 day season. Never know what may pop out I guess. A lot can happen in 60 seconds when you are hunting.
