I helped my buddy on the September archery elk hunt in 6a several years ago and we were into elk 13 days out of the 14 day season. We hunted up in the quiet area on the west side of Mary Lake up in the northeast part of the unit. The only problem with the unit is that they issue way too many tags because of the great elk population, but we still had a great time. Currently he's trying to draw another tag there or in 5BN just to the east of there.
My wife drew a late season cow muzzleloader tag in 6a back in 2009. I never seen so many elk in my life. Every morning driving in to our hunting spot the road would be covered in elk. A few times they would be running right down the road in front of the truck. We were into elk 5 out of the 5 days we hunted. It was her first time hunting so it was hard for us to get a decent shot, she was used to bench shooting and had a hard time adjusting to the scope. The one shot she had at 50 yards turned out to be a rag horn. If I were alone I probably would have tagged out my first morning.
Try to put your tree stand in a tree with plenty of background cover, keep the prevailing winds for that time of the year to your face, and take care of those pesky squeaks and creaks your stand may have developed while sitting in the shed. A good treestand lube can be made by heating petroleum jelly until it reaches a liquid form. Some hunters have reported success by including a cover scent in this mixture before applying it to their stands.
