"Nevada 072-075 late season cow elk hunt"

My wife drew this tag, on her first ever time applying. This is the first ever elk hunt for either of us. pouring over maps, onxmaps, the unit descriptions on Nevada's DOW site. Can't seem to find anything regarding this later season hunt everything I read seems to point to Sept.-Oct. I have tried to contact the Biologist but they haven't returned any of my calls. I'm looking for possible areas to camp (wall tent). Are these elk migratory? If yes would we be better off waiting till latter in the hunt (January)? Also anything I may not be thinking of that I should consider(water, weather, road closures, ect.???) Since this is our first elk hunt any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
Richard

Weather will be a huge factor for you. Two years ago there was 2 feet of snow on the valley floor and it was 24 below zero at noon the day I shot my cow. First two weeks there are people everywhere. I wait til mid December to start hunting it. The good news is you can find elk just about anywhere in the area. Depending on where you are coming into the hunt from I can give you a few general ideas on where to look. As I said earlier though be prepared for really bad weather.

I have this tag as well. How are the weather conditions in this area right now? Is it worth it to bring a snowmobile in late Dec / Jan?

I'm coming down from Alaska to hunt this hunt over New year's. Planning on coming down from Boise and starting around the 3 creek/ elk mountain area. Do you have any pointers for that country? ( I moved after I pulled the tag...)
