    Bruce is right - this unit is about 80% private property or National Park and the elk are on this property most of the time. I've hunted it for the last 15 years and only killed one elk. Access to the private property is almost non existent. I'm not trying to depress you, just wanted you to know the facts....

    If you have the late tag then you may have a chance in Hogs Heaven - any earlier than that and the elk are mainly in the National Park. If you do not permission to hunt private property I wouldn't waste the money on a bull tag for the Hogs Heaven area. You could go hunt Cedar Mountain, around Navajo Lake, there is always a group of elk in that area and is part of the Zion unit. That area is National Forest.
