any help for unit 4

Got a leftover in unit 4 northeast of craig as a backup plan, could anyone help with places to start? I normally hunt 161 but no tag this year.

Thanks for any input

What exactly do you have? A cow tag? In what season? And does that tag include unit 5? or unit 3? I thought most do, but wasn't sure.

any help for unit 4

I've done some scouting up there this year, and will be elk hunting first season with friends who have hunted there for several years. But its my first, so take this for what it's worth... I think serviceberry mountain and the northern edges of the national forest will be your best bet. My friends tell me that they almost never see deer in the national forest where we will be hunting, but they are all over the ranch lands down lower. So I would suggest looking for lower elevation public lands, north of the national forest, or along the lower edges of the forest. There are pockets of BLM ground that look interesting to me. I suggest north because it is harder to get to and likely to receive less pressure than the grounds near Craig.
