Has anyone ever hunted this Unit? If so, how was the hunt and have you scene any elk this year?

I've hunted 55 in the past with mixed success; some great years, some average years and sometimes it was tag soup, probably due to my greediness to hold out for something larger.

That unit gets some pretty good pressure and my personal opinion is that its not as good as it used to be for elk. But having said that the typical "north-facing slopes" and "dark canyons" principles apply. The accessable sweet alpine meadowy areas mid unit get hammered 2nd season. Look at the Difficult Creek area--it takes some shoe leather, but you will likely find 'm on yer way there.
