Those elk can be here today and gone tomorrow. My advice is hunt either the southern most units or the northern most. Also the units around badger pocket
nuke the gray whales for jesus!

Had the same problem about 10 years ago.  Talked to some MP's and apparently the elk know when the Arties are shelling and when they aren't.  If they aren't, the elk will be in the impact unit where you can't go.  It's a tough place to hunt for sure!

There is a whole lot more cover there than there appears to be at first glance.  Sometimes the elk appear when you think none are around.
