    MM, one bull is sure not gonna sway me one way or another, I've looked at dozens of them. Here is a sample of Unit 61 bulls from 2013:

    He hunted third season, we caught the elk moving down between ranges. We saw a lot of elk, just nothing over 300. I have contemplated doing the archery hunt up there, but again cant decide if 2 would be a better option.

    61 gets a lot rougher than 2. There are a lot of elk in 61, but like others have said weeding through them to find that bigger bull (and getting a shot) could be frustrating. There will be a lot more activity in 61 as well. 2 is relatively gentle country. If I had the whole archery season to hunt, I think I would go for unit 2.

    Have cow hunted in both units trying to figure out to do. Unit 2 is easier terrain than 61 and imo has better bulls in it. I think either unit can be great hunts but 2 would be my choice

    That is the kind of "frustration" I'd enjoy Bull after bull after bull after bull, screaming their heads off looking for cows. lol

    Sounds like you are leaning toward 61 . . . I say go for it. If I had enough points I would consider it as well.
