I've hunted it for years, but I'm not sure what you're asking. I don't know if it's "Worth the money", I do know there are elk there (I shot one last week) and it's a decent area (I've connected 2 out of 3 years with a bow). If one has the cash to pay for a trespass fee, I would always say go instead of competing with other hunters on public land. As far as where to go on private land, I can't help you. I've never hunted big game on private land.
Alot of third season is going to be weather dependant and remember, the elk have been hammered by then. If the snow is deep, try black sage pass or the lower parts of tamichi dome for starting points.
If the snow isn't flying, go high as always. A combination of meadows, dark timber, water, and no road access means you will find elk. Be at treeline before daybreak, in my rifle season days the opportunities were in the first and last 30 minutes of the day due to pressure. Don't expect a bull over 280.
You can pm me for more specifics on the elk side.
As far as deer go, there are big deer but I can't really help other than to say I sometimes stumble on them while elk hunting. Next year is going to be my first deer hunt, so I really don't know.

This very informative article was penned by Mr Jim Smith, a very accomplished hunter over a very wide range of areas and game. I am simply providing some information that should interest serious hog hunters among us. Mr Smith...
