I am currently in the planning phase of an DIY hunt for unit 421 for muzzleloader/archery during 2013. I have done some research and studied up on maps, talked to forest service etc. Hoping to get some first-hand knowledge from someone that knows the area about how difficult the roads are to get around in late Sept. We are planning to set up a "base camp" accessable by 4x4 truck and then pack in and spike camp if needed to get to elk. I realize there are many ATV trails in the area - but desire to get somewhat away from that pressure and hauling our jeep that far would be painfull on the gas mileage.

Thanks,

Bill
