Hi – new to the forum. Just bought my first rifle – a Savage 30-06 and am psyched to get out there in a couple months with an OTC bull and a leftover cow elk tag. I already have plans to be in unit 371 for the 2nd weekend of 2nd rifle, but am planning to pickup a leftover cow tag for either 2nd or 3rd rifle as well. From looking through the list the CPW regional guides and searching the forum, I’ve narrowed it down to 11/211, 12/23/24, 13, 15. All of these have options for 2nd and 3rd rifle still available. I had also looked at 42 and 421, but it looks like those units are usually over-run with OHVs, which I’d prefer to stay away from.
I’m pretty fit and spend most of my summer weekends in the mountains hiking and camping, so backpacking or hiking around doesn’t bother me in the least. That said, I don’t want to bite off more than I can chew. I do have a 4wd vehicle, so in general, 4x4 roads to access points shouldn’t be a problem.
I’m excited, but am a little overwhelmed by all of the options and information out there. I’m hoping to get out there to do some scouting over the next few weeks, But if anyone has recommendations for a first-timer, I’d really appreciate it.
