I am thinking about deer hunting in this unit for the controlled hunt no.1015. This hunt is Oct. 23-Nov. 18 (in 2003). I am planning on hiring a back country fly in service to get there. I was planning on landing at the Soldier Bar strip and hunting from there. I would also purchase the general season elk tag, just in case. This would be a first fly in hunt for me. Does anyone have better suggestions on areas? Should I buy the elk tag or is it a waste? Any comments on things to watch for when booking a flight or who to book with? Would you recommend another air strip? We would likely set a base camp near the strip and a spike camp a few miles away. Any and all suggestions/comments are much appreciated.
