Dec Rifle Elk Unit 8

Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone,

I have drawn a late general bull elk tag in unit 8 and was wondering if anyone had any advice ? I know its a hard hunt in December, made harder by weather and pressure but just reaching out for any pointers that might improve my odds of taking a meat bull.

The unit has elk all thru out. Weather could be cold as heck, or warm & dry you just never know so be prepared for everything. If your not familiar with the unit make some trips over the summer. The elk move around so where you find them in summer they may or may not be there in late season. Late rifle is crowded so be prepared for company. 8 has lots of road so its not easy to get away from the crowds unless you go into Sycamore Canyon, but you better be prepared to pack something out of there ITS NASTY. Sycamore gets a lot of hunters as well. Good luck I have the late hunt also this year. Scouting a couple weeks before the opener is definitely a good idea, but be courteous to the late archery guys.

Previous poster broke it down fairly well.  

I'll say one thing, this year unit 8 is way improved over last year.  Quality should be pretty good.
