Late Season Cow tag for 28/37

I picked up a late season cow tag this year. The season is on now and runs through next Sunday in GMU's 28 and 37. I have hunted a particular area in 1st and 2nd seasons before and have been successful. Today I was shocked. I hiked about 9 miles in a circuit hitting the major meadows and timbered hillsides. Deer sign was everywhere in the deep snow, but completely lacking was any sign of elk. Not a track or a pile of turds to be found. Talking with another hunter I ran into, he had the same findings. I am heading back out in the morning, hopefully the fresh snow tonight gives me some clues.

If anyone is familiar with these two units and could offer some suggestion as to where to head next weekend I would really appreciate it. I know most of the units from a camping and hiking standpoint and have hunted but have no experience up there at this late time of year.

I can't help you much but if

I can't help you much but if there is some low country in those units check that out.  Also if there are some high ridges that the snow will blow off of where they can't get to their feed may be a good bet. 

In my area all the cows are living on the golf courses right now.
