With no luck the last 3 years in one unit we decided to go back to my father in-laws old stomping grounds in Unit 75.
We had 4 draw Cow tags and a couple of us have OTC Bull Tags as well. We will be out Rifle Season 2 We went down last weekend to scout and found out that the area my father in-law use to hunt is now closed to motor vehicles due to the fires. This is devastating news due to the fact he knows that area. So now we are trying to locate some other areas in 75 that might be good.
I spoke with John Lear from elkheaven.com and he was extremely helpful for not knowing the area. He gave me some likely areas to find elk. I should mention that we don't have horses so we will be on foot. I don't mind hoofing it but I don't want it to be like the last 3 years where I have hoofed it all over the mountains and not get into any Elk. I did however get a real nice 4x4 Deer last year, so i feel confident that I can get game if its around.
If there is anyone that can help point us in the right direction, I would be most grateful.
Thank you and happy hunting to all those going out!!
