    Ok, I was trying to get you to ask more specific questions. I haven't hunted those units, and i'm sure those who have will help you. However, I can help some. About 80% of what you're asking can be found on the DOW site. They really do want to help you. You can see how many hunter hunted the unit, and what was killed. That will give you a general idea how crowded it is. You can see how many tags were offered, and how many applied and got what tags. There's a general description of the area in print, and then that have maps of every unit with the summer, winter range, and even the corridors when they move. Plus much much more info to help you. They even have an Elk Hunting University.

    There is one more thing you can do that very few even thinking about doing. Call up the DOW and ask them for the phone number of the warden for the units you want to hunt. Call them up and they'll give you more info about the unit than any hunter will. They'll tell you the good and bad areas to hunt. I've become good friends with my local warden, and he's always willing to help out.

    Part of hunting is research. Now, get at it!

    Also try getting ahold of the biologist for the area. We contacted the biologist for the area we hunted in WY and he was a huge help on narrowing down the areas we hunted. He also gave us the best idea of the time of season to hunt when there were less hunters in the field. I would also recomend having a good map in hand when you talk to both the warden and the biologist. I purchased a hunt area map from mytopo.com and marked areas while I was on the phone with him. Good luck!
