2010 Nevada Bull Elk Tag Area 111-115... Where's the big one's at?

Hi Everybody...I'm new to this forum, but I drew my Nevada Bull Elk tag after only 5 years. It came as a surprise to me as I figured it would take at least 10 years if not more...as was the case with my Uncle when it took him 14 years. So I know I am really lucky for this, but I am also in need of some help on the area. I would like to make at least 3 scouting trips so if you can help point me in the right direction (dirt roads, trails, GPS Coordinates Etc.) I would greatly appreciate it.

A little about myself.....I've been hunting ever since I was 8 years old with my Dad. The last 5 years have been fun as I have got to go with my brothers and Dad on a few Deer Hunts, and one Antelope hunt in Nevada. We all have been involved in long range shooting...especially after watching "BEYOND BELIEF". That was the start of a lot of improvements for us. Since watching a series of videos by John Burns...We have pillar bedded and glass bed our rifles as well as floated our stocks. In addition to this we developed specific loads for our guns and had our scopes sent away to have drop compensator's installed. So its safe to say we love to shoot. Nevada is great for all of this stuff to, as I haven't had a shot closer than 330 yards, and my longest shot was on my Antelope Hunt where I got him at 560. We also love to hike ....especially high. For us I guess we tend to believe the bigger ones are always up high so we start there and anything we see on the way up is a bonus

Last year we got skunked in Nevada and tried our luck in norther Utah for deer, but were unsuccessful in filling our tags. We saw many elk and moose on the hunt however we didn't have tags for those animals. It was a good experience , however it taught me a lesson on knowing your area. So any information you would like to share (dirt roads, trails, GPS Coordinates Etc.) would be greatly appreciated. Who knows maybe I could help you on one of your hunts. Feel free to (PM) me as well. Thanks again.

Here's a few pics:

Big ones are going to be in the wilderness areas. Your best bet will be to hire a guide with pack animals.

Yes, it's possible to DIY in area 11. But he got lucky drawing after only 5 years. The average is around 10 years to draw. It will be 10 years before he will be eligible to start applying again.

So, what I'm saying is, this will be his only Nevada bull tag for likely the next 20 years. Why not stack the odds in his favor and hire someone who has the animals, knows the area, and likely knows where the game is?

If you're set on DIY look high in the Schells between Kalamazoo and Success Summits(Wilderness Areas). Cleve Creek on the East side has good access, and there are several good access areas from the Duck Creek basin side(Timber Creek, Bird Creek, Berry Creek, and Worthington Canyon.

There is also the Mt. Moriah Wilderness area. I don't know it well, but have heard good reports.

If you want area with vehicle access, I'd look around Schelbourne Pass to the North and Taylor Mt. to the South.

I'm Proud of you!!! I knew you could do better. Your reasoning is right
on the money though.
