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.
One of the most important pieces of equipment that you will take hunting is a good quality pair of optics and they take some care to give you the performance that you want. So here are a few tips.
Use some alcohol and cheese cloth to clean the lenses. I will usually pick up an extra cleaning kit from my optician when I have my eyes examined.
Don't touch the lens with your fingers. If there is a stick or a bug on them blow it off.
Use the lens covers. They are there...
