LOTS of guys on the 1500  and within a few hundred yards on either side. Especially on the weekends.  Road hunters and guys hunting out of camp. Not too many venture out too far  Get in deep and thick in the rattlesnake drainage and you'll see some elk.  They're in there. Lots of country to be alone in down there.

Are you talking deer hunters? No general season for archery elk so I am hoping it won't be REAL busy.

Modern Elk hunters.  OP stated they had the Modern bull tag.

When the OP listed the Rattlesnake I didn't know he meant the Little Rattlesnake.  I have the Goose Prairie permit and have been studying some areas on the GoHunt site and getting to know the boundaries.  Like the Bethel Ridge Road separates the Nile and Bumping from Bethel.  But what are boundaries but lines on a map.

We talked to a handful of guys there while we were there and nobody I talked to had notched their tag

Just got home from General Muzzle season. Saw two 6 points and a raghorn 4 point and over 60 cows. All advice given is good. Work the steep side hills, and drainages, there are people driving all over in there during Muzzle so rifle season should be an absolute zoo. Pray for snow and get as far away from the roads as you can. It's tough because it seems like there is roads everywhere. Study google earth.

Just watched a 6×7 come out of the bowl I'm sitting over. Look where you think people drive right past and don't think there's elk :twocents:.
