Anybody have any experience with this country for the late elk hunt? Is there access issues? Thanks.

There's a lot of country to hunt. The biggest problem in the snake mountains is all the elk have made a run for the Mary's River Ranch once the shooting starts.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN ELK
Area 7, Unit 075
LOCATION: Northeastern Elko. See unit description in big game brochure.
ELEVATION: 5,700 at Wells to 8,760' on Antelope Peak.
TERRAIN: Variable. Valley bottoms to mountain benches.
VEGETATION: Desert shrub in lower valley bottoms to black sagebrush and pinyon/juniper at
the upper end of mountain benches. Considerable amounts of aspen and mahogany.
LAND STATUS: The majority of land within this unit group is public land administered by the
Bureau of Land Management, however there is a large section of private land on the north east
side.
HUNTER ACCESS: Generally good throughout the majority of the harvest unit.
MAP REFERENCES: Topographical and land status maps are available from the BLM (Elko)
or private vendors. The U.S. Geological Survey 1:100,000 topographical
maps that cover the area is: Wells and Jackpot. The U.S. Geological Survey 1:250,000
topographical map that covers Unit 075 is: Wells.
FACILITIES AND SERVICES: The town of Wells provides most services. Primitive camping
is available throughout public lands within the unit.
RECOMMENDED HUNTING AREAS FOR ELK: Jakes Creek, Loomis Creek, Deer Creek,
Dry Creek and the Antelope Peak areas presently provides habitat for the majority of elk within
the 075 harvest unit. Elk are generally associated with water sources during September.
Sources of water within the harvest unit vary from perennial streams to small springs and
artificial water developments. Generally, hunters can develop a fairly good picture of where to
start looking for elk by first becoming familiar with a map that identifies various water sources.
SPECIAL COMMENTS: Hunters should also be aware that this mountain range is
approximately 50% private land.

What about the elk mountain country west of Elko? Any opinions on that country? In the unfortunate position of trying to make it down for the late cow hunt without any experience with the area. I moved to Alaska for work right after I drew the tag. Also looking at Double mountain in 73 and the country north of the Jarbidge. Any info/suggestions welcome.

If Hunting and Angling Ended
There is no alternative funding system
in place to replace the potential lost
funds for conservation. If hunting and
angling end, funding for wildlife
conservation, including enforcement of
all wildlife laws, will be jeopardized.
Hunters, anglers and shooters actively
support wildlife conservation through
tangible actions such as buying licenses
and paying taxes on hunting, fishing and
shooting equipment. Why are hunters and
anglers so willing to support
conservation through their pocketbooks?
Because people place added value on
and are willing to pay for what they
can use.
