Okay so here's the story first.
-I separate workout days (legs,butt, arms,abs)
-I want to bulk only in the leg I'm butt area
-I burn approx. 500 calories a day
So should I have a calorie surplus only on my leg and butt day in order to gain bigger muscle?
Do I keep my calories at a minimum on arm and ab day to maintain/loose weight in that area?

As long as your active, with a moderate-to-intense workout, and you are honestly sweating a good amount, I wouldn't stress too much on the calories. Our most important tool and notifier is our body. Sometimes when you eat food that is not necessarily good for you, it doesn't make us humans feel good. The mirror test is also essential. If you are not happy with your progress, you may have to make a slight decrease in calorie intake on rest days or minimum activity days. However, when you are moderately active, you can maintain a normal calorie intake. Don't starve yourself either, it is important to maintain healthy meals throughout the day to promote a good metabolism. Good pumps and good luck!
