Elk Hunting Colorado's Unit 56

Big score!  I just drew my first colorado elk license for Unit 56 in the Nov.5 -13 season.  Any advice from all you veterans out there on Unit 56, or just hunting late season bull elk in general?  I appreciate all the help!

really not a late season

3rd season is traditionally one of the toughest seasons to elk hunt.  Thats a good unit, but it's big country with several 14ers.  You can actually use that to your advantage somewhat, as the the elk shouldn't be too high in the drainages during 3rd season, making them a little easier to get to.  And pray for snow, but not too much.
