Howdy all,

More than likely we'll be hunting 2nd season rifle in GMU 29 as our third choice tag this year. I realize this is not a trophy unit (though you can get lucky anywhere!), the access is checkerboard and the harvest statistics are not good for the unit. However, as our third choice I figured I would rather be out hunting than sitting here wishing I was out hunting.

I have scouted a few areas already just to get a good idea of the terrain and cover, but what most concerns me is determining what the best elevation to hunt at that time of year (mid-october). I know, it is probably weather dependent. Last year we were grouse hunting above the peak-to-peak after elk season and snow wasn't an issue.

If you've got sensitive info you're willing to share, PM away. Thanks for any help you can offer.
