Ulmer, Let us know how the hunting turns out in 40 or 41 if you draw a tag, I have a guided elk hunt scheduled for one of those units in 2015.Both 41 and 40 are good choices and IMHO would both be better than 47 or 49 for access and amount of public land. I also think there is probably a better elk population up there.
I will have 2 pp's going into the special draw in 2015. Based on the last few years 2 pp's in the special draw for area 40 or 41 is 100%. This just shows the difference in when applying in the special draw.It can make a big difference in alot of units. You really have to study the draw odds to see how much difference it makes in each unit.
