I was wondering if any of the Elk hunters out there had found pockets of Elk in the Medium distances off the roads in public land. What i mean is I know people are always talking about the pressure in the first 3 miles of the road. Then the hard core guys hike in, or pack 10 mile of the road. I was wondering about pockets of Elk that may hide in between and let people go by. I do a lot turkey hunting on public land and deer hunting on wildlife management areas and have found lots of animals that like this in between area they just grow silent or find hollows or little valleys to stay in and let the average hunter go by.
