My cousin and I are headed to this unit 1st 2 weeks of season. We're in shape and have a few spots picked out. We feel like we've done the homework needed to maybe dumb into one. Just wondering if anybody had any past experiences there. Good or bad. Don't want your hunting spot just some insight. We're going either way at this point. Thanks.

steve-wv My son and I just spent 4 days riding horses up the lost man/ midway trails. Saw elk every day, the bulls we saw were only to their 4th points, so I can't really tell you how big they might be. We glassed the highest places we could looking for deer and saw elk literally at the base of the rocks. This equates to about 12,000 plus feet. We are interested in deer only, hope this helps.
