Hey homies anyone got any intel on 3A3C been here for a couple days now having a blast turned up a nice bull scouting but he disappeared after the snow and opening day hit. I showed up helping some buddies with my glass and pack and we need a little help. Been hammering this unit pretty good but it’s big. Hit me up with a PM if you got anything.

I’ve been told that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. Then I’m definitely going insane this week we’ve been out every day hitting the hills hard find a road then find a ridge glass and repeat go back to the best looking areas in the morning and night wait for them to come out. Cut fresh tracks follow them if they are big look to see if the tracks go around the low hanging stuff or through. We just have been out gunned by a really big unit but we are going insane for sure. We are gonna kill a spike tomorrow I can feel it we’ll take anything at this point.

I wish I could help you. Those elk have been hunted hard since the middle of September. Go deep... find the most remote area in the unit and go there, that's what I'd do. Ed F

Thanks ED it’s rough you know they are deep but they are in the deep draws that aren’t glassable and if you walk in there you blow them out and they aren’t coming out having lunch now at Buffalo Bills now and I highly suggest it if your in the area. Heading to the south side of the highway after lunch I figure we may be able to find something that hasn’t been chased yet if we head over there.

Paul I would 99% of the time agree look for water but apparently the fish and game have given the wild horses priority and there is a full tank along the 300 road about every half mile the short and long of it is there is water everywhere

I certainly do not know this for a fact, but, I have heard the big bulls fall back into the Rez after the rut.   They get way less pressure in there.  That 300 road gets pounded.  And yes there is water every quarter mile.  Great during rut, but, south of the hwy gets a lot of pressure.  If you still have time, I would check far north of the main hwy in those big washes and draws.  Even where it starts petering out into antelope country.  These are the remote water holes I would check.  If elk are hitting them, then focus on those remote areas.  post rut bulls pick the least pressured areas to winter.

Also, if you are seeing cow elk, your are in the wrong place probably.

Found the most amazing glassing spot could glass in 360 degrees and had great country everywhere and could not turn up one bull but I wish I had a deer tag found a coulpe nice bucks. Hit the north side of the highway this afternoon and found some more amazing looking areas and couldn’t turn up a damn thing.

This time of year they stay high....once you find them game on. Your gonna see them miles away for the most part .....good luck!

And hit the open space with elk, if not spooked hard.....I've had 400 yds to 1.5 mile stalks in open prairies.....their is a trick to make it work

We threw in the towel it sucks but oh well I’ve never hunted so hard. I had a blast time spent in elk country is time well spent. I found some great glassing spots hit me up if you ever need them.
