Some friends and I are planning a DIY elk hunt for 2007. First, we want to hunt the first rifle season and we were looking into unit 14, what do you think are chances of drawing tags would be? Actually location doesn't matter too much. We just want lots of public land and first season tags. Our biggest concerns is that we don't want to run into to many hunters, even if it means a less of a chance at elk. I guess that is why we were looking at 14. Our plan was to find the largest chunk of public with a decent chance at elk. Is the first season the only chance at a either sex tag, from what I read the second and third season are for cows and the fourth season is either sex tags that are left over from the first season. So if we don't draw tags for the first season are we left with just a chance at cows?
