Spent the last 6 days in the Big Horns at 8200ft. It was warm, but nice. Highs of 65 and lows in the low forties. Rut is good , bulls weren't responding to cow calls but would come in to check out a bugle. We got 3 angry 6x6s and one 5x5 with the bugle. Missed a few opportunities but had a blast.
It's been in the 70's and 80's for the past month but cooling close to freezing at night in antelope country. Rattlers are still out but I never really worry about wearing gators or snake boots. Bring lots of water because you'll likely need it during the day. The rut is really picking up and should be ok into the first week or so in Oct.
