any update from unit 7 and 8

I wass wondering if the wonderful blast of winter was affecting the elk and there behavior. This weekend we didn't see much of a Change, a couple bugles and still high in the mountains. Just wondering if there moving around at all.

any update from unit 7 and 8

I hunted muzzy season from 9/12 - 9/17. Hunting at the 10000 ft elev in unit 8. Saw a few animals opening weekend, but as the weather warmed, things went really quiet and the elk disappeared. Oddly enough, I talked to two different groups of hunters that were into elk at the 9000 ft elev during that time. one guy killed a 6x6 bull that had been screaming for 2 days prior. Havn't heard what the weather has done to their disposition, but I'm guessing it could only be good. Wish I was in posession of an archery tag to be hunting these last few days of bow season. When/where are you hunting in 7/8?

any update from unit 7 and 8

I've been hunting every weekend kinda all over. We have hunted around the old roach site for a couple weekends, greenridge for a weekend, and the rawahs for a weekend. We havent seen a thing so far. Last weekend we finally heard some bugles and hunted around 10,000 feet. We talked to guy who said they have been chasing a heard around and a guy poked a 6X6 friday so they helped him pack it out. I was just wondering if the elk were going to hold out up high or if we should look lower. I'm feeling some pressure to atleast get into some elk.
