Hi all. 1st time visitor here. I have been hunting unit 42 for several years, but have been thinking about looking around unit 25/26. Anyone know much about that herd. Any help/advice would be great. Hunting public ground.
Presumably you mean CO units. 25 and 26 have elk. The sweetwater area bounded by deep lake to the west Trappers Lake to the north and Sugarload Mountain on the east is a fairly popular destination for some hunters. Its also another part of the WRNF, as you are probably famaliar with having hunted 42.
I would hit it archery and first-third season, although it might be too high come the late season. 25/26 also have some special elk tags, although the details slip my mind at the moment.
Hunting is not usually a pursuit where instant gratification abounds. It takes a lot of time, practice, resources and patience to be a successful hunter. So when someone decides that an area they hunted only once without taking an animal is worthless and devoid of game, I don't quite understand it. These people usually jump from game management unit to game management unit; trying a new one every year.
Now don't get me wrong, there are people that just enjoy scouting and hunting...
