If it's 40 then South Mountain, of course also can depend it's a Sept hunt or Oct-Nov hunt but you've probably already know this?

So if it's in october I'm assuming you have the cow tag. south mountain is a september early october elk area with it not opening until after the deer hunt I suggest looking further south I happen to have a deer tag out in 42 I will be scouting all summer if I see some good elk numbers maybe I can let you know and if you happen to be scouting much in 42 for elk and see any big bucks you can give me a shout. that could be a win win for both of us.

I wish you had a unit 40 for deer I could point out some good draws for you to hunt.

Wow a bull tag your a lucky man. I would spend more time south of mud flat than north of it if you know what I mean. Have you spent a lot of time in that area? I know 40 I grew up in 40 I have just grown tired of the long draw odds so I thought I would try somewhere different I have some good infoon elk herds feel free to pm me.
