WY Cow elk area 47, 48 or 49 Which one to choose

I will be meeting up with a buddy for our first hunting trip in years and looking at possibly buying a leftover Wyoming Cow tag.

We'll be hunting deer in Region M and have a choice of leftover cow elk tags Unit 47, Unit 48 or Unit 49. I need to know which of the 3 units I have a decent chance of finding a cow elk on public land or maybe a place that I could pay a small trespass fee to get a cow elk. Also, if you don't think any of these tags are any good, let me know.

Any help would be appreciated.

none of those are really elk country

This is the Copper Mountain area in unit 47, where there is a Hunter Management Area, and would likely be your best bet of those three units.  It's pretty arid outside of this area.

WY 47 Copper Mountain

Thanks for the heads up on Copper Mountain, but it doesn't open until after te deer season is over (Oct 15-31) and I won't be in the area. How about the walk-in-areas or HMA's in 48? Any elk on those walk-in or HMA's
