    Yep, they are to be in by 5PM Mountain Time on the 31st, not the 28th. I've hunted out there almost every year since 1992 and your best unit with plenty of public land that holds elk is 47. 49 has very little public land that holds elk, other than the ne part off Rome Hill Road, as most are on the private ranches on the east side of the unit. All the BLM land you see on the west side of 49 is void of elk and is basicly deer and antelope country with very few of them because of the continuing drought.

    ok thanks guys for the info we have decided to go a few units farther north to 41 and 2nd choice 40 its closer to home looks like it has a longer season last year and if we don't have any luck getting one still be fun to hunt in hills and mountains instead of the flat crop land and roads every 1-2 miles like here in ND where the road hunters see just as much as the guys out working for them

    Both 41 and 40 are good choices and IMHO would both be better than 47 or 49 for access and amount of public land. I also think there is probably a better elk population up there.

    I'm still trying to figure out how and why Eastmans' keep rating 47 and 49 higher than 40 and 41.
