The stallions are done breeding July 1.  After they spend 2 weeks in pens to themselves to cool off their hormones,   they go the next month in the back country, living with and carrying the trail crews supplies. 

After trails are cleared, the season merges into bear, then elk and deer until almost the end of November.  The stallions are there all along the way packing family, guides, clients, game and whatever else needs done.
