Have never hunted Elk in this unit. But hunted deer here 2010 and 2004. We hunted early season last year. It rained the first week and was difficult to get anywhere. We hunted high on Mt. Grafton and saw alot of elk. This is all wilderness so walk in or horses. During the Deer hunt the Cow Elk hunt was also going on and the Elk seemed to be moving to the high ground and to the west across Cattle Camp Wash South of Bullwack summit. Saw some huge bulls. Only bad thing is most of the big boys were pretty broke up from fighting. As far as the deer we ended up getting our bucks in the low country around cattle camp wash. The high ground was overrun with people unless you got 2 or more miles away from the roads or in the wilderness. Found a good spot for camping North of Patterson Pass on the west side of Mt. Graffton on the wilderness acsess road off of cattle camp wash. Good luck to you both. I drew the 104,108,121 bull elk. hopefully we all do well.
