    I know a guy that has elk hunted there and done well. Its really big country and I know they pack in and hunt on horses. Sorry I dont have any useful info. All I know is hard the terrain is were they go.

    I've only hunted over there during the spring bear season, but saw deer and elk all over. I imagine they'd be in much the same areas during the late summer, but I don't know that for sure.
    It's great looking country!

    Are you talking about packing into the wilderness area or the Minam unit in general?
    There are definately elk, deer and especially bear in that unit. The elk can move around quite a bit, so if you do a drop camp, you could end up being in a place where the elk are not.
