Re: Elk hunt planning - Idaho, Montana, or Colorado?
I have a 10 day drop camp set up for November this year in the Selway/Frank Church area. Looks like a great area, and we are fully prepared to hunt our asses off to get an elk on the ground. There are some monsters taken there, and for an extra $30 each you can add wolf, bear, and mtn. lion tags to your hunt.
I'll be taking the 338 Lapua and 280AI on the hunt looking for some long shots if they can be had. Anyone on here have any experience in this unit for us "future" hunters? how's the terrain? heavy timber or wide open? I've looked at some topos and it looks like we may be able to get a little spot and stalk in, but nothing like first hand experience.
I am looking at a late season hunt, so the Elk should be coming out of rut, moving around a little, and the Mulleys should be in full swing. The plan is to hunt like hell for the Elk and deer, then hunt over the carcasses for the predators and see what happens.
Y'all throw in your two cents on this unit, hunt or strategy. Any advice or input in general is better than nothing!
