Wyoming Elk 37-6
I have been checking this forum out for a while to stay on top of all the great things that are being past around...thanks to all that have shared!
I have a couple general questions and if anyone can help me out that would be great too!
I am building my Elk/Deer points but during the process I would like to get out to the Big Horns and hopefully take a cow for the freezer and at the same time do a little deer scouting for area 27. I have hunted around unit 18 for deer for 3 years, so this area is new to me (I have hiked a lot in the mountains so I'm not worried about the terrain so much) I will be solo hunting, I am dropping my wife off at the airport after we get done camping in Yellowstone, so I should be there by Oct 5, 2013 and plan to stick around until deer season and how ever long it takes me to get on a deer. Assuming I do draw these tags and the regs do not change that much here are my questions;
1.) The WY game and fish book states unit 37 has having poor access, is this because the September cow hunt is only limited to the north of Wolf Creek Trail?
2.) If I do draw I will be hunting Oct 5 to when deer season opens, so I plan to hunt the "unused area 37" tag. Am I understanding this correct...I can hunt and hunt anywhere in 37 (assuming I have permission) but I will be sticking to the national forest. No other tag needed if I draw the 37-6 tag?
3.) I know this is not a easy hunt and cows can be very tough this time of year, along with weather being a issue. My only concern is will I be wasting my time hunting...are there consistent herds in this area or do they come off the mountains and head to the private land?
Thanks in advance!
