I am having a hard time deciding on what unit to go after elk. I am looking at mt zirkel wilderness area in 14 and west elk in 53. I have hunted 53 before. I am looking to go backpack in a couple miles and hunt. Any info would be great. This will be my first spike camp hunt so any help would be helpful. Thanks

Hunted bears in 53 last year and was amazed at the amount of hunting pressure in Sept. Not sure if you are looking at archery or rifle. I do know that last year there was 125 bear tags in Sept and this year there were 350 issued. If anything, it may be more crowded this year. There are definitely elk in there, just a lot of hunters in my opinion during Sept.
