Well how bout them apples....I had among my most enjoyable trips in those years. The only things I ever heard were the occasional plane going into those strips as I sat on ridge tops enjoying the vast U shaped valleys , seeing my tent as a tiny dot in green meadows by the glacier blue White river several thousand feet below ...some of the most beautiful, peaceful country on earth.

Growing up with planes and flying them with my father, I always loved seeing the pilots flying in such breathtaking country. They are salvation in times of need, as every chopper .

You must know the fun of passing low over the strips several times to scatter the mules and horses off the grass and to the side so you could land ! I always loved watching pilots do that , and at distance, the animals leaping in every direction reminded me of fleas jumping .... smile

I probably saw you too, and gave you smile and a wave.

Thatís a pretty broad statement and assumption North. I understand your concern about having the legs. Iíve been across the country on some pretty demanding hunts, Iím just interested in the Bob due to its size, scenic offerings, and ease of obtaining a tag. Like my original post, just looking for personal experiences related to the Bob Marshall Wilderness Area.

JoMiBru, I will tell I have been all over our country and Canada. It is absolutely some of the most beautiful country I have been in. The solitude, knowing it is you, my guide, and 1000's of, miles of no one. The occasional plane over head. Actually it is cool being on a mountain peak and look down on the plane flying under you. I have no regrets and love it when we go. But I understand the risks, and rewards. I did shoot a 329 6x7, so they are there. Brother shot a 350" 6x6. Keep us informed if you go.
I am about to book my 2022 retirement moose hunt.

Jo,
I know nothing about your ability to hunt so it would be hard to give you advice / information you were asking for.My questions were not meant to be discouraging.They were for me to help you with advice/information as you asked.I can tell from your response you don't need my advice/information so happy hunting.

My dad went on a guided drop camp hunt there about 12 years ago, elk and deer, and really enjoyed it. Killed both, though nothing huge.
Off topic ? about that wilderness area; can a fire be built? The wilderness areas around hear cannot build a fire or have horses. Although nothing near as large as the Bob. Good luck, and most definitely let us know what you decide. And results.

Our profile is where we live, not where we have worked in our lifetime.
But at least you understand what a flatlander is.
dealing with big brown fuzworts in hunting situations is what some guys don't get, look at the trailcamera footage on Muskrat 411 on this forum just posted
