You will find that there is a

You will find that there is a lot of roads in Unit 15 but a lot of areas that never see a hunter in them.  If you don't mind me asking which outfitter did you go with.  I will be able to tell you where you will be hunting by that info.  Mid October water holes will work but not as good as the early hunts.  A 300 class bull is very do able.  I was told to hold out for a 350 class bull.  So you should have no problem find a 300 class one.  I hunted this unit for the 1st time last year and saw 17 bulls and over a 100 cows and calfs.
