unit 80 otc
Has anyone hunted unit 80 in early rifle season for elk was wondering if there are a good number of elk and what to expect for quality of bulls. looking at a diy hunt with horses and info would be great. thanks guys
I think you can have a good hunt in unit 80. There are some places you will want to avoid, like Conejos Peak. Look closely at the Dow web page. Elk summer near North Mountian and Grayback Mountian, in late summer they disperse to the surrounding forest. Using horses I would go down Wrightman Gulch from Summitville. Another place is the east end of Hogback Mesa. The area all the way back to North Mountian. Look on the map at the area between Sheephead and Lookout Mountian. There is a closed road through there that you can ride but expect some hunters in there. There are some 300-340 bulls but most will be smaller. Easy places will have lots of hunters, I have tried to list places with less pressure.
