Info on GMU #77

PM sent with some better areas.
I think those spots are a little high and Rocky for September. For others, not just you, don't forget that in the mid 11,000 to 12,000 foot range, the grass will start to dessicate sooner due to the earlier frosts compared to areas just 500 to 1,000 feet lower. A big herd bull will command a large elk herd, and it takes a lot of food and water for for all those mouths. And areas near running water will likely stay greener (and therefore more palatable and nutritious)longer into the fall. Just a general rule of thumb to think about.

GMU #77 Info

Thanks for the reply and Info... I have hunted Goose Lake in Unit#76 did well .. I wanted to be in the same region but need it to be a over the counter tag ... that is why I had chosen #77... and was looking along the border of #77 and #76 for some suitable out of the way possibilities.... I will keep doing some searching again thanks for your input it is very much appreciated.
