I've hunted 74 a couple of time during rifle season. Lots of outfitters using the trailheads then. I live about 50 mile west of there and hunt 71 & 711 mostly. I hunt M/L mostly now in these units. Usually after opening week there is a lot fewer hunters. Hope this helps some. If you want more info, call the G & F office in Durango (970) 247-0855. They are really helpful.
