this hunt is still pretty new the the unit. it is a ether sex tag and there will be snow. I would head to the northern part of the unit around hopewell lake. I wouldn't be to pick on what to shot. good luck.
Give me a call I live here in the unit and I will help you out. The elk won't be that hard to find but they will be down lower depending on the snow. I could help you out and probably get you some permission for some private land areas.
When it comes to scent, there are basically two types; those that attract and those that mask. I've tried both on many occasions. There are lots and lots of "doe in heat" scents, designed to attract a big buck into range. I've also used a "cow in heat" scent while elk hunting.
Another scent would almost be better named as a "coverup smell". The main goal is to cover up human odor or mask it. Though I don't believe you can ever totally eliminate all human...
