I 'm planning ahead for 2022, i have 13 points, was looking for information for these areas in regards to access, and would oppening or last week be the best. It looks like area 1 is a smaller area, and i have heard that area 2 has a lot of private. Thankyou.

There is an HMA in area 2 which covers about half the area but many times just open for cow hunting. Area 1 is almost all public. Best hunting in area 1 is early during the archery before they scatter to private and South Dakota. Both are great choices, if I recall area 2 is more difficult to draw. Completely different types of topography for hunting, depends on what you prefer.

Become an archery hunter! You have a year. Today's bows are so much easier to shoot and so much faster than older ones. Much more exciting! If the elk are going to largely be gone before rifle starts...you could be burning15 years of waiting. Or maybe try a different unit with less private.

I hunted 38 a few years ago archery and it was a great hunt. It’s also a great rifle hunt from what I hear from friends that have done it
