    Jim,

    I've hunted in 61 and 62 for elk all my life, and for someone who isn't quite sure what to do I would suggest hunting off of Divide Road. We've had a lot of success, hunting on almost any ridge between Campbell Point and all the way down just past the Tongue. We usually drop in around mile marker 31 or just past that. Honestly just follow the bugles, put in the work and you should get a great bull

    I personally love to hunt right around mile marker 32, drop in off the side and play the wind and bugles from there.

    Good luck to you sir

    Wow, you have been able to hunt 61 what a lucky guy. 2 years ago we hunted 62 and actually rented a cabin from Austin Massy on the 61 side of Divide road. I don't remember what mile marker but it was a about a 45 minute drive back the worst wash board of a road pulling a trailer around 20 mph to keep from bouncing out of truck. WE didn't have good luck 2012 3rd rifle they had a bad drought and seemed like everything moved out accordingly to the locals. WE kind of figured the 61 bulls would cross over but they knew to stay down in. Austin is an outfitter also stopped in one day said a he one hunter out and they was seeing 30 bulls a day. I would like to go back where I was hunting I could set up for agood long range shot.
