Unit 4

We are looking at property bordering the national forest in unit 4 north of Craig. Somewhat north of Black mountain.

Does anybody have any insight or experience hunting unit 4? Not looking for the honey hole, just hoping someone has some knowledge/ experience in the area.

Thanks.

Lots of elk

Lots of elk there, by look at propery, did you mean private land to purchase or land to hunt?  Almost all of the large tracts around there are enrolled in the RFW program, but there are a ton of little 5-30 acre places around the edges.  Wouldn't expect to actually shoot an elk or get some sort of great, secret access points with those properties though.

I have hunted that unit for

I have hunted that unit for the last 3 years.  This year, we saw elk 5 out of the 6 days we hunted.  Unfortunately, we only had bull tags, and everything we had shot opportunities on was cows and spikes.  There are lots of elk in the area, and, consequently, there are lots of hunters as well.  Not only does the area get hit hard by elk hunters, but deer hunters as well.  

Good luck on your property search!

Thank you for the input. I

Thank you for the input. I talked to a guy that hunted the unit and he said the same thing. Lot's of elk and elk hunters. The numbers look good for the unit.

I hope we get something worked out.
