there is a decent amount of public mixed in with some private its a checker board but i can help with that.
there are also some really big chunks of public
the dow officer i ran into says he has tried increasing elk tags but they just head for private and never get shot.
Umpqua there are supposed to be some big ones in there
when i was scouting for deer i blew 2 330 bulls out from in front of some unhappy archery hunters
the other one was maybe a 270
another hunter told me of a mulie he thought was a elk (his rack was so tall)
good luck in the draw guys
