I wish I could help you more than this, But my experience at Black-tail's on your side of the hill's is limited. The best advice I can tell you is to get to the gates early and find some cut's way past the gates. Get there well before sunrise and glass those cuts. Good Glass is priceless in your country. If you can find a good cut off the beaten path ( which is going to difficult, but doable) pick it to pieces with the Binos. I assume your doing the "modern firearm" thing so most of your shots should be within 300 yards. But longer and shorter are a definite possibility.
I don't know if Werehouser<sp> or Longfiber is even opening there gates to hunter's with the extreme fire danger we have been having. But a bit of time on the phone will help here. Having a mt. bike and not being afraid to use it, helps a bunch also.
You are going to see a "Buttload" of road hunters. I mean it will turn your stomach, there will be so many. But they can be beat by just getting off the roads and get your "Hike" on. After doing the morning searching the cuts, get up in the woods. I don't know what it is but them blacktails like power line cuts thru the woods too. It must be ease of travel for them...anyway, thats about all I can help you with. 90% of my hunting over there was Archery Elk in September. The town of PeL(pronounced Pea-L) was were we went into the Werehouser land at. I can't remember the road numbers,sorry.
Sorry for the ramble, but I hope I helped a little. Let us know how you did. Remember, Pictures! or it didn't happen
Edit: Don't forget to get a Bear tag AND a Cougar tag if you can. About the time you don't have one you'll see one of those damn thing's. Remember the calf or fawn you save now, might be the BIG boy you shoot in a couple of years.....Just sayin.............
