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!
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
