    Default DE323 1st time hunting Elk in Alaska

    I have never hunted this area (Unit 3) and was hoping someone out there might be able to tell me something about this area. I have not been able to find any information concerning the elk in the unit. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    When they planted the elk it was on the SE corner of Etolin. Still seem to concentrate on that end. Some of the biggest ones are on top and 7-8 hours of hard brush bustin hikin. A friend went alpine and dropped a 5x5 with his bow. While he was workin on it a 7 stepped out of the brush and got my buddy neverous he was so close and just stayed there. He didn't know if the biggun wanted a piece of him or the one on the ground, cuz he was covered in cow urine!! LOL The rut is usually during bow season and ends before rifle begins. There are wheeler roads on the north side but not much sign of the ghosts.
    My boy drew a tag 6 years ago and we went into a lowland lake with little sign. Did see some flying in that were laying in muskeg. A boat on the beach told me that someone was puttin a stalk on.
    Fin and feather has a hard time on aerial surveys because of the dense Tongass.
    Good Luck and fill me in.
    Even a jackass won't stumble on the same stone twice.
