I'm looking at the MRS for Wyoming elk, and am a little confused.. Most of the units start around the first of October, for example, unit 7 starts 10.15. I was under the impression that most of the units open in early September for archery only.. Am I missing something? Is the opening date listed for the units for all methods, and the entire state opens archery early, or do only a few units allow early Spetember archery hunting (type 9).

Thanks in advance for the clarification.
