Aerial surveys are not conducted in the South Hills Zone due to the large land area and dispersed wintering elk population? Fish and Game receives annual agricultural crop and property damage within this zone? Management issues (primarily agricultural issues) and hunting opportunity (quality) are similar across the GMUs proposed to be included in this zone? Grouping them will better allow wildlife managers to balance preserving quality hunting opportunities by slowly increasing elk populations while being watchful of and responsive to depredation concerns? Elk populations will be allowed to stabilize or slowly increase to sustain valued highquality hunting opportunities while maintaining property damage complaints at or below current levels by implementing new and proactive measures for increasing landowner tolerance of elk?

HuntScore Tip

The quality of your hunt depends on you. Preseason scouting, preparation for the environmental conditions, and physical conditioning are important factors. The success and quality of your hunt will likely increase with the distance from your vehicle and roads.

Weather Insights


Weather can vary by elevation. See how weather varies by elevation within a unit by selecting an elevation range. Elevation ranges are based on weather stations in or near the unit. Not all weather elements are available within the unit.

Average Temps

Use temperature ranges to plan and prepare for your hunt. Large swings indicate a good layering system should be used. Be sure to make note of the extreme temperatures as these often pose the greatest risk to hunters. If you plan on hunting in higher elevation, as a rule of thumb, expect the tempture to decrease roughly 5° for every 1000' in elevation gain.
