Unit 55 Elk

I have been hunting unit 55 in the Cement Creek area just west of Lambertson Peak for the past 3 years. I go during archery season the first or second week of September and I see an occasional elk here and there but have never gotten close enough for a shot. The bulls have never been bugling during this time. I hunted this area in Sept 05 and didn't see a single elk. Unit 55 is large and I was hoping someone could point me to a better area withn 55. It would be nice to at least see an elk! I am open to any suggestions.

I also hunt in that area but I go no farther than where you turn to go over Reno Divide, then I go mostly west to the Double Top area usually see elk dut not everyday. What area are you from I live here and have been looking for a hunting partner maybe could show you a few spots if you would like to get together some day.

Unit 55 Elk

Me and 4 of my buddies are from Kentucky. We look forward all year to coming out to your great state. I have been hunting out there for about 8 years and have never gotten a shot at an elk, but I'll continue to come for the rest of my life just for the scenery. Only 3 of us hunt and the other 2 come only for the scenery and the experience. I would love to hook up with you when we come out. I have hunted at the top of Reno Divide before but never in the Double Top area. I see lots of huge mule deer but never a lot of elk. I know they use the area.....fresh and old sign everywhere, but they had left the area right before we got there and I could never find where they went to. I don't care to get off the beaten path, in fact I prefer to go where you won't see anyone else.
Thanks for the reply.
