Planning an archery, backpack, DIY in GMU 81 this fall. Not looking for specifics, but the area has grown in elk numbers over the last few years, which of course attracts more attention. I have flexibility when and where I hunt. Since I'm coming from OH, I'm planning a couple extra days for acclimation to altitude. I've never had issues with altitude, but I'm not risking ruining a trip due to haste. That said, I've been looking at the desert areas and also the wilderness areas, both of which have an ample amount of public land. I'm awaiting a call from a wildlife officer, but I thought I'd ask the forum for advice based on what I've shared. Thoughts, Ideas?
