  1. My son who just turned 21 put in for his first time and was drawn for a late hunt [Novdmber] in unit 9. Both my son and I are just taking up this sport so any pointers or areas to scout in would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you all.
  2. Congrats to your son.

  3. Welcome to AHT !!! Most elk live in the woods, good place to start, Boots and map on the ground always helps.

  4. Welcome to AHT!!! and congrats to your son on the tag! It's a great unit with elk throughout. The late hunts can be brutally cold up there, three years ago on opening weekend it was -13 degrees in the morning, yet 2 years ago it was lows of 30 and highs in the 60's so be prepared for anything. I wouldn't rely on anyone for advice on spots. You've got plenty of time, go spend a few weekends there and you will not have a problem finding elk. The G&F website is a good source of info on where to start looking. Don't forget to report back and let us know how it's going!
