REGION 3 CHECK STATION UPDATE: Final Numbers for End of General Season
By angelamontana


Hunters venturing out on the final weekend of the general deer and elk season were met with plummeting temperatures and moderate success. In at least one case, a near 60-degree temperature drop was noted on Saturday alone. Another station closed early on Saturday when only 32 hunters came by the typically busy check station by mid-afternoon.

Here’s a look at the weekend’s data:

The Cameron check station checked the most animals, while Alder also saw a good hunter harvest checking 44 animals. Success was down at the Divide check station despite good elk movement onto winter ranges, and fewer than average hunters came through both the Mill Creek and Silver City check stations.
