Is it a bull or cow tag? Either way you're going to see a lot of elk. I'd start scouting just north of Long Lake and North to Jacox Mountain. Try calling them in during the morning hours and if you get lucky enough not to get in a fight over a water hole, sit in a blind near water and they'll come in. If you find a good water hole, make sure to get there early cause its first come first serve no matter who built the blind or stand. Good Luck!
It is a cow tag. We hunted 6A North last year and had that issue over a water hole one evening. I had a cow tag and this other hunter thought it was fine to come in and join us at the hole since he had a bull tag!
What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
