11 and 211 are not exactly the kind of mountains you picture as elk country. There are elk there, but it's not super high elevation, backcountry wilderness stuff. Expect scrub oaks and P-J, some mixed aspen and pine stands too, but not a lot unless you're over 8,000 feet. Road access is very good throughout most of the area, no real need to hike 6 miles anywhere. Pick a parcel, hunt it, and if there's nothing fresh, move on quickly.
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!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
