Andy,

I was thinking of my deer tag when I wrote those dates.  I've got the same hunt as you, except for a cow elk. 

How was the water situation when you were up there? 

I just finished mapping all the unit wide landowner properties.  PM me if you want to compare some notes.

unit 50 NM ELK

Hello my fellow hunter I am going in blind to a unit 50 elk hunt Oct 6 and have been trying to get some information on where to start. Your post is the only piece of info that there is elk there and was wondering if you would be willing to share any of your promising areas with! Can't scout considering that I live 7 hours away. Thanks john 5756938898

Hey Andy,

No worries.  It's a busy time of year for everyone.  I'll try to give a call later this week and we can swap info.  I appreciate your willingness to share what you have learned and I'll happily let you know what I've seen.   I was up there the same weekend saw more sign then I did live animals, but at least the sign is encouraging.  I know they had some rain up that way so I suspect some of the water holes might be holding a little bit of water.  Still seemed pretty dry though.   11 days and counting.....

bagged and tagged unit 50 6x6

Got a nice one with little to no info where to start i covered a good part of the unit in 8 days found some hot spots went everywhere except pot mountain, talked to a guy who hunted it first two days of hunt and said there was a ton of people there and no bulls were pulled out and he ended up hunting where i was which was a hot spot! Good luck........
