Elk are widely distributed, but hunting pressure during the early seasons appears to be forcing animals from GMU 62 to GMU 61 which is a totally limited unit.
Mesa and Delta
Most elk will be at higher elevations during the early seasons above 8,500 feet in thick timber and oak brush. Distribution changes in relation to weather and hunting pressure; so hunters should be prepared to adapt to conditions.
