As a successful spring bear hunt ends now the work for the fall hunt begins. July means scouting and plenty of it.
An unusually wet spring and summer so far are going to mean good antler growth, but also somewhat different patterns for the deer and elk. Most years the game will be concentrating around water sources as the hot summer drags on. Not so this year. Springs and mud holes usually dry will support entire herds of elk and hunting on flat tops will be better as a result.
