Units 6 & 161

Looking for some information to start planning for the 2011 elk season.

We hunted the Kelly Creek area of Unit 6 for several years and always did fairly well. We were younger and packed it with horses.  Those days are gone.  We drove past Bull Mountain not far from the KOA and talked to people that hunted the mountain and they did fairly well.  Does anybody have any experience with Bull mountain.

We are also considering hunting Unit 161. I have some maps and other information given to me some years ago indicating some good areas.  Anybody here have some info they might share?

Two of our guys are banged up from accidents and they are not able to cover the miles they used to.

Thanks.

Is Bull Mtn in unit 6 or unit

Is Bull Mtn in unit 6 or unit 7? I don't have any experience in unit 6, but could offer some advice on unit 7.
You could check out Exbiologist's website. He has "honey hole" picks for most, if not all, units. I used his pointers to get in the right place to find elk last year. I just made the mistake of not shooting the first legal bull I saw. I passed on a small, legal bull in hopes I would see something bigger. Big mistake to make when the season is only 5 days. It won't happen again.
Anyway, check out his site for some great info because it is very affordable.
Good luck and good hunting. Keep the forum informed with your results.
