Hey thanks cowgal! It's 861 and tough country. Public land, but no ATV's, roads beyond the main one and even too steep for good horse hunting. But, that's what we like about it because it eliminates a good 80 to 90 percent of hunting pressure.

Wow, that is a rugged unit! Good for you. I love that area of the state, but don't get down there too often.

Is there much pressure there during the rifle seasons? I know up here in the northwest corner, public land is tough to hunt during rifle seasons, not due to terrain, but the sheer numbers of hunters in the field.

In areas with better access you get a lot of horse hunters and camps with some walking in. Where we go, again due to the terrain, it eliminates most competition even in the reg. rifle seasons. You've got to be in some level of shape or you ain't going to far in. We averaged six to seven miles a day in and back out. Combined with all the packing out of meat on our backs it made for a grueling six days. We got game on four consecuative days and packed each day. My dad's 65, my uncle 56 and I'm the youngest at 37 so, they worked their butts off. You got to love it to do it cuz it's a lot of work as I'm sure you and any other elk hunter knows.
