Game and habitat information
Peak Foothills North is located right in the heart of Unit 7. The Elk are here for a reason, this region in Wyoming is renown for the abundance and diversity of productive elk habitat. Elk in particular, utilize the understory in both forested and mountain shrub habitats. Ponderosa Pine forests and large Aspen groves on the ranch are excellent places to target Elk due to the abundance of understory vegetation and screening cover that they offer. Another tactic is to look for recently disturbed areas such as burns, beetle kill, flooding, etc. After disturbance, the plant species that grow after an event like this is exactly what elk target, Broad leaf plants "forbs". Elk in this scenario will utilize mature forested areas for cover and move into these disturbed areas for food in early morning and evenings for a feast. Pressure from the public land will also push elk to utilize this property. Hunters must be strategic in their approach, use the land to your advantage, lots of glassing, watch the wind, and position yourself with patience to capitalize on the right opportunity.
