Hello I just joined and new to this forum. I'm going to elk hunt second season rifle and just trying to get a better picture of what I am up against.
I have read alot on the blogs in regards of these area. It appears that there are roads every where in both areas as well as HOV trails.
I have been doing so much research on this hunt. I havent been able to scout the areas which I normally do before buying a tag. I guess I just have the itch since I have been unlucky as drawing tags this year,
I have read these units are heavly populated with hunters as well as elk but it sounds the area is extremly diffcult to find the elk since there is so much pressure.
I am trying to get more information if theres anyone with great advice. I talked with game warden and he said I should find elk as long as I am willing to get a 1 mile or 2 away from the roads. I was not sure if he was just trying to be saleman to me or is it true.
