    I draw unit 42 elk in Idaho. That's like drawing mt. Emily in Oregon but better.
    So pumped!

    I see that is in the far south-west corner of the state. No roads, no towns, just a lot of game feeling all safe.

    How are you planning on getting in? All by foot, or on a quad, or a horse? What's your plan?

    What gun/caliber are you planning on taking (or buying and building up before the hunt)?

    We hunt that area on a private ranch. Last year we shot a 175 mule deer. Giant ranch . Drive right to camp. It's the least access largest ranch in the lower 48.
    I need to limit the info to that. For privacy. Hate saying that.
    Area is to big for my horses so it's always quads there.
    Gun? I don't know. Probably my .300 short mag.

    I had a zeiss scope on my short mag, but didn't lik it. Cabelas gave me credit back, and I got the VX-6. Also picked up a sig rang finder. I like both products.
