    3rd Rifle season

    Hi looking for a little input or thoughts about hunting elk in unit 14 or 15 for elk in the third season, I would like to have had boots on the ground but being over sea's right now makes it kinda hard. Any info would help. Thank you

    3rd is better than 2nd but where the animals are located is totally dependent on the amount of snow.

    Chances are yes there will be some snow, how much is the real question.

    I bowhunted 15 three years in a row and we have snow 2 of three times the 3rd week of September. One year we got over 12 inches in 12 hours.

    I'm kinda new to elk hunting, but I would prefer for there to be some snow.

    Snow makes elk hunting so much better. Especially in the later seasons because it draws the bulls out to feed and they stay out longer. It also makes spotting elk through the glass a lot easier.
    A bad day in the woods is better than a good day at work.

    Some snow is great..... be careful what you ask for though.

    I hunt 1st season regularly and it is not uncommon to see snow the second week of Oct.
    We have been almost snowed in a couple of times 2nd season.
    Be prepared for a lot but hope for just some!!!!!

    I have hunted 5 2nd season and 3rd had snow for both but in IMO the 3rd is better less people and more elk. 5 has blm and some of the routt Nf found some restricted travel area and get away from the crowds and you'll find the elk
