Never hunted either, but I have hunted right next to unit 12. I believe it's over around Meeker or East of Meeker right? I hunted around Yellow Jacket Pass before in rifle season on private land. Isn't 39 over on the Eastern part of the state? I know I drove through there on my way out last year and it seemed more like farming country than elk country. Maybe I'm thinking of a different unit.

Is 12 in the Flattops? From what I hear of that place there are elk everywhere and archery is the best time to hunt it. I may be picking up a new sponsor in this area. I'll be finding out more this week from them. I hunted in the 371 unit last year and was pretty impressed with the amount of elk I saw. Those mountain ranges (Eagles Nest to Flat Tops) definitly hold a lot of nice bulls.

I'm not looking at a map right now but I think I'm close to where you're wanting to hunt?
