Default Area 110 Snowy Range, WY

I got my first elk, a spike, in area 110 in the Snowy Range west of Laramie, WY about 8 years ago. Ever since, we have been going there to try to get my wife her first elk and hopefully, a second one for me. We see lot of moose in the Savage Run Wilderness and my friend got a monster bull last year, but the two of us haven't seen elk since I got my spike. I am hoping someone might have advice on a place to try. Nothing specific, but some good places to look to at least see something.

Thanks for your help.

I've not been up in that country for years, but used to hunt it a lot. Look around Rob Roy and also around Lake Owen (an area that didn't get as much pressure). Fox Park was always popular. There used to be a pretty good herd on Sheep Mountain, but its been a long time. If you get one up there, you might want a horse or two lined up... In any case, cover a lot of ground. I imagine that whole area gets hit pretty hard. Look for pockets of good cover, feed, and water that don't seem to get as much pressure.

Looks like my earlier post didn't post?

Most of my hunting in the MedBow has been in 9 and 10. I've hunted 110 a couple seasons, but the places I've picked to get into Savage Run from usually seem to result in more of a "Savage Crawl" than a "Run." Some tough country - I spend more time flyfishing and bighorn-watching in 110 than I do elk hunting. A trout is much easier to pack out.

I'm in 7 (again!) this fall, or I might be tempted to poke around last year's burn from Jelm north towards Sheep Mountain. I haven't been up toward Lake Owen this year, but it might be that there could be a good number more elk than usual there if the forage was good this summer in the burn? That's area 9 though. I've seen more moose than deer OR elk this summer up in the Snowys, often right by the highway. Kinda nice to see them again.

Thanks again guys. You statements about seeing more moose than elk are right on! I wish one of us would draw a moose tag, but they are a lot of fun to just watch. I had some one suggest Pelton Creek west of Fox Park. Do you guys know anything about that area? Like I said just seeing elk would be cool! lol
