Ladies’ Social Hour @ Virtual
May 18 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

When spring turkey season ends there are several months before the fall hunts start. What do those that love to hunt do during that time?

They scout. The summer months are a great time to get out into the woods and mountains to scout for that fall elk hunt. Not only is it cooler than being in town, but it is also a great time to observe elk, train yourself to recognize tracks and scat and familiarize yourself with your Game Management Unit.

  • One landowner living near a national forest or Bureau of Land Management property that is used extensively for recreational off-highway vehicle activity;
  • One producer or one grazing permittee on public lands from the farming or livestock industry;
  • One person from the off-highway motor vehicle industry;
  • One off-highway motor vehicle user;
