    Stay out of there, it's my area!!! :D
    Seriously though, there's no bull elk tags available for non-residents in the Grouse Creek area, or Pilot Mountain area. There's only a few resident tags for that area because there are a bunch of CWMU's in that unit. If you aren't familiar with the CWMU, go here for more info....Cooperative Wildlife Management Units (CWMUs)
    There is also a bunch of private land owned by farmer/ranchers in the area so public land is tough to find and hunt. I've been told that some of the ranchers will let you hunt on their property, but I haven't checked.
    Cow elk tags are available to everyone, but the app period is already over. About the time the deer hunt ends, the elk leave the area and move into eastern Nevada and southern Idaho. Unless you can afford to buy a CWMU tag, its a really tough Bull hunt, and a fairly tough Cow hunt due to the small amount of public ground.
    Good Luck!!!

    I screwed up about the cow elk tag application being over. They do that after the regular draw. I sent you a pm with more details
