Unit 17-high percentage of 6 pt or better bulls

I was checking out the Idaho Fish and Game hunting statistics for Unit 17. I was pleased to see that last year 71% of the harvested bull elk were 6 points or better. In 2009, 78% were 6 points or better.
Our November hunts produce some nice long range hunting opportunities for the qualified shooter. With the above statistics, the chances of harvesting a nice bull are about as good as you can get on a public land hunt.
