Heading to Unit 22 for late September archery elk hunt. I was wondering if anhyone had hunted this area? We intend to pack in 7+ miles on horseback into the area that was formerly 22B and hunt on foot from there. We are looking at setting up base camp on a spring around Black Mountain.
Anyone done this gig before? ANY info would be extremely appreciated but some particular questions we have:
Will we likely find elk at the higher or lower elevations or both? What will drive this?
Any good sources for finding out if particular springs are running?
How rough is this country?
Anyone fished in this area?
