Looks like I have enough points to draw unit 11 elk. My main focus would be on archary hunting, rifle only if I have to. I have heard that unit 11 has bulls of close to the same quality as unit 7 any thoughts? Whats the hunting pressure during the archary season. vs unit 7. Any help on unit 11 wouldbe appreciatied
You could always apply for an area you wouldn't draw. Use your second choice as a 11 type 4 (cow tag). Then you could hunt elk and see if it's worth your time.
Area 11 you will not have much pressure during bow season. I am a resident and did what sliger was saying.. put in for what I wanted and second choice was a type 4... Learned the area a couple years in a row... with the help of some people and my experience, my son an wife both got bulls in 11 during the same year. (go figure). You will definitely see elk, and you will see some decent bulls... but not many that would grace the cover of a magazine..
