When you are talking about a certain unit in a state that the tags are hard to draw you are asking questions to a very limited resource.
I would suggest that you are going to have to get out there and scout the unit and find the water sources for the elk for a start. If you are from out of state then I would suggest that you give the regional game and fish office a call and talk to the biologist for that area and see if he can give you a hand on where to go.
In the spring of 2007 I was the unfortunate recipient of an injury cause by a damaged carbon arrow that shattered on release of the arrow. I was in the yard going to take a few practice shots before dinner and the second arrow is the one that did the damage. That day will forever be burned in my mind. After I release what happened I made mistake #2 I pulled the tail shaft of the arrow out of my hand causing more damage.
Thank goodness that my wife was home and was able to...
