    It's probably more me than IGWT not giving 501 enough credit. Living close to the unit I would think I'd hear more about it if it was any good. Maybe your right and it's a sleeper. The low amount of tags undoubtedly has something to do with the lack of popularity too I assume.
    I have hunted the wilderness for elk as well as the burn. I don't see how you could go wrong with a 4th season deer tag. Sorry IGWT. I put the wrong name with the wrong post. Pm me and I would be happy to share what I know

    He was banned some time back. You can get a hold of him over on frontier muzzleloading or modern muzzleloading forums. He' still the same Old Hunter... he goes by Muley Hunter on the other forums.

    I've hunted 501 the last 6 years for either deer or elk. Let me know if you want my opinion.

    I plan to elk hunt 501 during muzzleloader this year. I would appreciate your opinion or anyone else's.

    Where are you from? Are you sure you'll draw?

    I'm from Indiana. I applied with several more preference points than the minimum required in the past so I should be able to draw easily.

    Like I mentioned above, I haven't hunted Elk in the unit but do live close by. I've hunted Deer there a little (very little). I might be able to help out with specific questions on access, or other logistics. Shoot me a PM sometime if you have any questions. I'd be interested in hearing your opinion about the unit after your hunt. Good luck!
