    I don't know anything about unit 19, but have you spoke with the Game Warden's/Biologists for the area? They can speak to the trophy potential, general area to hunt, and quality of the herd. Have you reviewed the harvest statistics? That should at least give you an idea if the area has animals to harvest. Just a couple thoughts to point you in the right direction.

    Also, stop on by the new members section and introduce yourself. You may get a better response from the other members if we know a bit more about you and see you sticking around and participating.

    The place i am looking at is west of fort collins the land looks like it could definitely hold some nice deer. I plan on hiking in far enough to get away from the crowd of other hunters .

    I have seen some huge deer in that area in the summer time but I have never hunted it. Genetics are great if you can find an older deer.

    Hey guys, I have a 19 archery tag, I've scouted a total of 20 days this summer. There are a lot of deer in this unit, problem is the buck quality sucks. I haven't seen a buck bigger than 130" all summer.
    The Dow a few years back got the bright Idea that cwd was running rampant through the heard and felt it would be best to massacre every deer they could. Not one case of cwd was found! The heard is starting to come back but the genetics just aren't there yet. I'm mad I spent my pref points on this tag. I did not do my homework before hand.
    IMHO not worth it. I'll probably end up with a forky seeing that's all I've seen since season opener. It's not from lack of looking, I've hunted from timberline to the flat lands. Unit 20 holds better deer or try the gunnison basin

    19 is a tough area to hunt. There are some decent bucks there. But they have a lot of places to hide. If you don't have intimate knowledge of theses buck haunts it's even tougher. I hunted the area off and on while going to school and I killed one good buck. Several more got away. It's rough, and the deer population is low. The biggest deer there are in the private foothill country. There are 200" deer there. PM the season you are hunting and I might be of more help.
