Best advice for that unit is get in shape, like sheep hunting shape! Second best advice is if you are really going to hunt the good parts of that unit and you don't have pack animals you better get a hold of mtcook on here(Western Life Outfitters) unless you are a Cameron Hanes type of guy and I think even he would want pack animals in there. Its a great area with plenty of good bulls just really rugged and roadless. Congrats on the tag. nwhunter

No truer words have been spoken. TOUGH HUNTING!! I'd give my left testy for that tag, but I have horses and mules ready to go,  Get in High School shape, no joke :) :)

how far in would a person have to pack in to get in to the best parts of the unit? i have friends that have horses and are willing to help pack a bull out! but we are interested in hunting by foot.

Yeah, as soon as we get a little more warm weather and some more snow melt, you need to get down there and see for yourself what you have got yourself into.
Your friends that have horses should become your best friends real quick.
IMO, it's the most difficult to hunt, difficult to access elk country in this state BY FAR!!!
Good luck  :)

Are the horses going to be with you in the unit or are they going to be in Moses Lake if you kill a bull?
I saw this part of a post referring to Wenaha East one time a while back.

The terrain reminded me of Glacier Peak Mt. Goat hunting
;)
The concern  I think with killing a bull in there is that if you're 5+miles in and kill a bull, you gotta get it out before it spoils and hopefully avoid killing yourself.
Once you get down there, you'll see what these guys are saying. Hunt from foot if you want...have MtnCook on speed dial for if/when you kill a bull.
Good luck and keep us in the loop for your hunt and scouting.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
