The fall 2006 archery season was slow, perhaps due to warm temperatures and a full
moon during the peak of the rut. The elk were active at night but remained quiet
and passive during daylight hours. Even with the daytime slow-down in elk activity,
several bulls were called in providing a number of shot opportunities. Despite missed
shots to three bulls a nice 6X6 was harvested. The elk became far more active and
vocal during late October and November. A large 6X4 bull and six cow elk were harvested
during the rifle season.
