    Colorado unit 83 & 85 San Isabel Natl Forest & North fork

    Any insight on this area? Unit 83 & 85 in the San Isabel national forest, and North Fork. We hunt a great deal of private land in Unit 851 just south of there and it is world class. However, I've never hunted the public areas in these units. Have some buddies wanting to do a DIY public land archery elk hunt next season and I have considered this area because its close to our other camps. Curious if anyone has general direction (good, average, or stay away).

    83 is pretty much all private and it sucked this year. 85 can be decent nothing hyooge but there are some elk if you can get away from the crowds.

    Just got home from a trip to unit 85. Hunted the San Isabel National forrest and it was a very tough hunt. High temperatures and large amounts of hunters made for a long slow week. Came home empty handed and ate tag soup!
