Thanks again for the information and maps. For the past several years I have been hunting area 521. I have taken 3 elk with a bow and 3 with a gun out of the 12 years I have hunted there (2 respectable bulls). I feel that is pretty good. I usually pack in by horseback or backpack. I was fortunate enough to have an uncle that had hunted this area for 2 decades before I started making the trip. He was a tremendous guide. Well, he is up in the years now and doesn't go any more. So I hope you don't mind me asking so many questions because you have been a tremendous help so far. Possibly going to a new area with no knowlege of the area on a DIY hunt is tough and I feel the more info i can get now the better the hunt.
