    Anyone here plan on doing any hunting in the Wilson unit this fall? I have never hunted there but have been doing some scouting over the summer. I have found a lot of bear and cougar sign and a bit of elk sign when I've been out hiking. Anyway, I'm not trying to get your secret locations:D but any info on areas to avoid might help. Dang it's steep out there. Does anyone know which company owns the large patch of land at the top of Larch Mt. road?

    At the top of Larch, hunt the standard grade rd. The owners of the property keep the gates closed so you'll walk or Mt. bike in. If you get something down and need to drive in to get it out you can ask the owners or reps if you can drive in, they’re pretty cool and will probably let you. They park in 3 or 4 trailers near Blue Lake. There are some big nasty bulls up there but be patient. Find a high point, glass a lot, spot your animal then get after it. It aint easy but oh the rewards.

    Good luck.

    If you plan on hunting elk in the Wilson, invest in a chainsaw winch
