Like Karl said there are elk to be had in all those ranges. Several years ago had the muzzy tag and hardly anything was open. Get out of the rig and hike the canyons. There there. Wouldn’t catch me turning back in a tag in this state!
Nobody asked you to turn in a tag.

Believe me I wouldn't be turning my tag back in either if there wasn't going to be 90 tag holders in 2 open units. you might as well go hunt the general season. That to me is not a quality hunt.

it’s not a quality hunt even if there weren’t limited units open. :twocents:

This is why I do not apply for this unit. Lots of elk and big bulls… yes. Deer and big deer yes. But it is not a quality hunt do to the limited restrictions and unknown factors. Yes it says so in the regulations but can’t help but feel for the people who gambled the odds and drew the tags to now deal with this. There are animals to be had but not the quality potential it should be.

It looks like there are 175 permits being given out for that GMU.
Nature. It's cheaper than therapy.

Definitely more than that. 30 quality bull tags and 5 disabled hunter at least. Plus master hunter and general archery hunter.

True, although the Quality and Disabled permits also include GMU 334. The 175 permits are exclusively Alkali.

When I headed over the Pass going east on Saturday afternoon it was one convoy after the next headed to the YTC. I have never seen so many in one day. Must have passed 8 between North Bend and Ellenburg.
