Congrats on elk, I will also keep that in mind I haven't applied yetI know you said you were gonna apply yesterday but by chance you didn't yet. I would apply for zone #2. It has plenty of elk and lots of fields, food plots, mast trees and such. I drew 2 years ago and drew zone #2 and did it DIY. I had lived in the area previously and had friends there that could help me get the animal out. If you are lucky enough to get drawn, feel free to message me and I will give you all the help I can in where to start scouting. If you have three or four friends that can help, a DIY hunt is absolutely doable.
