I will be going to Colorado for first rifle elk hunting in 2015. I am considering hunting units 44,444,45 and 47 I was looking at maps and other info online and am considering the Holy Cross Wilderness area. We are at this time planning to hunt from a truck base camp with wall tents and then hike in to hunt. We may stay for a few days up high and backpack hunt working out of the base camp as needed. I have hunted units 44 and 444 before in second rifle about 14 years ago along the gypsum creek area and red table mountain saw some elk but didn't connect. Just looking for some early insight from those more experienced. Any help would be greatly appreciated. None of our plans are set in stone, my plan is to stay flexible to try and improve our success. I am not picky I would consider any elk a great success. Actually just getting out to enjoy the outdoors without a bunch of other hunters in our area would be considered a successful trip.
