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.
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
