Better do a pre hunt scout and back pack trip. Thatís not just a day trip in and out into crow or cement basin especially when you kill a bull in there.

Yes, trying to change my summer and fall schedule.  I would get this tag when I have an Alaska trip and a cross state bike tour into Canada planned as well.  I am an avid backpacker and bikepacker, so the planning is churning in my head.

+100,000 for backpack scouting trips pre-season. Bear hunting is a great way to scout for elk ;).

Also, definitely be cognizant of the weather. Ravens is well known for stranding folks when a snow storm moves in, but it's far from the only place that can happen. Also, as much as I love Ravens and similar places, killing a bull 1500' in elevation below the truck is... uh... not for the faint of heart.

The truth is that the Peaches tag gives you soooooooo many options for great places to hunt. Have fun!

I am looking into putting up a wall tent camp at the Sand creek trail head to hopefully avoid being snowed in.  Been there, done that.

The last couple years Iíve been up there in August and September tons of elk and awesome country to be in. I mainly hiked in on Crow lake way and union creek trail. Crow lake way trail is uphill and switchbacks for the first 4mi and found the first spring a little over 4.5mi we hit the ridge line to the east and got into great elk country. Union creek takes you through the bottom we normally head up the north fork thereís quite a bit of blowdown and there really isnít much of a trail left past the second falls heading into the north fork. Once you start hiking out of the bottom it starts to open up and gives you spots to glass. Iíd keep an eye on the weather it can definitely be a factor up there and packing out is no joke. Hope this helps congrats on the tag!
