    Elk Hunting the Bob Marshall

    I hunted the 'Bob' a lot, many years ago, so nothing on current conditions. I remember it had many steep areas as I was hiking but would open up where I could glass open areas. It had elk but I never saw a lot ,it may have been me and not the area. It has great views and is worth the hike...
