I hunted 24 during 3rd season in 2007, have not
killed a Bull but had a great time and did see Elk.
I will be going back during 3rd season this year
with friends, and hunt the same area. I hope the
weather does what its suppose to up high during
that time and puts the Elk in migration mode. This site
is a great place to obtain info.
I've successfully hunted there, but I'm not sure I'd say I enjoy all the company.
There are a few good bulls running around up there, but for the most part, you're looking at raghorns and cows, which really sin't a bad thing. There are tons of hunters in there simply because there are a ton of elk in these units with lots of BLM and Nat'l Forest to hunt. Don't be surprised if you see camps parked right off the road............they're everywhere. Unless you plan on hiking in a good 3+ miles, you're gonna have alot of company.
If you're like me and use a plastic tote to store your gear in then you might want to read further. When plastic totes are manufactured they are typically shipped with the lid on. This makes the inside of the tote smell like the plastic it's made of. To remove the plastic smell from the tote I use baking soda. I open the baking soda up and leave the box in the tote with the lid on for about a month to remove the plastic smell. I tried just leaving the lid off but I was still able to smell...
