I was successful in drawing a first season either sex tag for units 75/751. This is going to be a DIY solo wilderness pack hunt. I plan on accessing the wilderness through one of the various trailheads that lead into the Weminuche. I am limiting myself to about 5 miles. I fully understand the rigors of packing an elk out of the high country as this will be my fifth elk hunt. To physically prepare myself I have trained and competed in a half marathon and olympic distance ironman.
The reason I decided on a pack hunt is to get away (relative term) from excessive pressure and to open up more opportunities to move with the game.
If anyone has any information they are willing to share on these units it would be greatly appreciated.
I will keep everyone posted as my planning progresses and hunting season gets closer.
