    COhunter,

    There are some giants in the unit, but it is mostly pivate. The last couple of years have been rough on the public (NF).

    I have deer hunted there quite a bit. I have seen some big elk the biggest I have ever seen was around 370. However, I have gone a couple days at a time without seeing elk. There is a lot of private land. However, I think if you hunted for 6 days or so you would have a good chance at a 320-340 class bull, from what I have seen anyway.

    Lots of private, if you pay the big money, you will have a good chance at a trophy at a private ranch. If you are DIY and are trying the public land, it would be very tough and you would not be alone trying to snipe a good bull crossing public. That is what I have found in researching the area.
