I have a cow tag for this area and have hunted it several non-consecutive days starting in November. I've been on Red Mountain twice, Jelm Mountain once, and each accessible state section near Tie Siding twice. I've yet to see any sign of elk beyond some old tracks in the snow. I'm not to the point of being discouraged yet because I expected January to be the best time to hunt the unit, but I'm interested to know if anyone has any personal experience hunting in this unit they're willing to share. I'll be going out again this weekend, to both Tie Siding and Jelm. I'm praying the snow pushes them into the public land.
