    Hunted first time there this year. Waayyyy too many people, wouldn't go back unless they cut tag allotment in half. Great country, but overall quality of hunt I'd rate as below average. We bivied, we're in 1-6 miles, saw a couple good bulls and very close to putting a bull down, so you ask how can one complain that's elk hunting? I'm comparing to 7-8 other DIY public land trips done in 3 other states. Good area just need to cut back on tag allotment

    AMEN. ive been sending fish and game emails for years, that zone has the potential to be an in and out tropghy unit, and 350+ class bulls get taken in there every year during archery and the controled rifle hunt, but the archery numbers need to come down. controled archery even.

    I hunted there 2 years in a row about 5 years ago. We never heard any wolves or seen any tracks. Are there wolves in 66a now?
