Good luck.  If you're going before the end of May, definitely bring your scatter gun and a turkey tag.  Just in case the bear hunting is slow.  The Merriams are thicker than rats in some places.
Look man, some times you just gotta roll the dice

Was up in north part of unit setting cameras, elevation 3900; still lots of snow on the ground and it was snowing on me while there.  Snowshoes would be helpful for a fellah headed that way in the next few weeks! Good luck.

I was out scouting again this morning, unless you bring something with tracks you will not get very far until May, and it depends what the weather does for the rest of April if early May will be any good?

If you come early plan on hunting low elevations, there are bear in some low elevations in that unit.
