I’ll would like to hunt Unit 62 this coming season the week after Muzzleloader. Never been to Unit but will be going this spring, looking for a better lace to start any help would be appreciated

My favorite place in that whole unit is just down hill from the divide road.

PM sent. I don’t hunt it anymore. Your welcome to my hard found locations. As most will tell you go to the bottom of the most well known canyons.

But that’s where most people go

Try East of the NF out in the barren desert looking BLM. Put a couple steep and deep canyons behind you traveling north or south out on the BLM and the pressured elk are in small pockets of cover and water. It’s like the moon and does not look like elk country.

But no one told the elk that.

You can also buy leftover cow tags in 66 and it’s very doable, think it’s already been mentioned elk get pushed very hard up around the elk looking country but I’ve seen multiple bulls down while hunting antelope in places you don’t think of being elk country.
