Either sex unit 28 4th season for me

Well with the results out looks like my future son-in-law and myself will be up in the Fraser area trying to figure how to find a elk. We drew a either sex tag for unit 28 in the 4th season.
This will be his first hunt, just would be nice to put him on a elk, and for me to see one again.
Looks like I now have 9 preference points and son-in-law has 1.
Any suggestions on use of prefernce points? I fell I should wait awhile until I get a better understanding of this elk hunting, would hate to waste the points until I fell I can find and hunt elk with confidence. Any comments welcome value your thoughts, I am learning so much from all the advise I get on this site.
Hope you all got the hunts you wanted and have a good hunt. Thumbs up

Sheep Mountain use to be good. I haven't been up there in years and know they have built some houses and broken the land up to the east of Sheep Mtn. With 9 points you might want to look at Ranching for Wildlife or if they ever come back with point banking, do 2 good hunts. Unit 40 also comes to mind.

Thanks Hiker. What unit number are you talking about? I was thinking maybe trying for one of the units that is very limited on the bull tags and has the real big big boys. Not sure what the units are, I think they are in the north west area maybe like 1,2,201 or 10. Like I was saying not in any hurry as I would like to learn to get better at just finding elk. Thanks again.

Good thing you're not in a hurry to get into those areas, as it's gonna be a good while before you get the points to draw. I'm in the same boat.......

I was talking about unit 28. Boobzilla is right, those are some tough draws you are looking at, it might take 20 points to draw those down the road.

I see the sheep mnt. on the map after I did the post. And as far as the wait on the trophy areas, I look at it as it will give me some training time. Lord knows I need it. Maybe by then I will have figured out how to hunt these darn elk.
I just LOVE this site, I learn & hear new idea everytime I look around at the fourms. Yes

--question not even to answer your question, but my son and I were just informed that we have been drawn for antlerless elk tags: Tinemaha West Period 2--which I believe is just South of Bishop California. I havn't been able to find a map specifying just where that area is--can someone help?

Welcome Nick. West Tinemaha is outlined in Orange on page 35 of the California Hunting Digest. It doesn't give the border description, but I bet you could get that from the DFG website
