    Buddy and I drew this tag this year. Been pouring over maps and Google Earth a lot lately. Obviously this is big country. My general question is where is the majority of the foot traffic happening at? We would like to avoid as much human activity as we can. We have our hunt planned for the first week of season through Labor day weekend.

    Don't worry too much about foot traffic... You are in the back country and no matter where you go, you will see back packers... The deer are used to this, so don't even factor it in... Most of the trails are not near bedding areas either... There are the CT and divide trails that run through that country as well as a 100 mile race that goes through that country in the summer/fall... The deer won't even care...

    I drew 75/751 this yr first time applying for it.(was expecting points, but i'll take it!) I live in Farmington NM and hunt elk in these units every year I get the chance. I have seen some great deer while on those hunts! Google earth does not do the terrain justice! Most of it is very steep and rugged. There are some very good access roads outside of Durango to get you started in the right direction. Send me a pm and I can give you a little more detailed information. I'll be more than willing to help anyway I can. Just can't give you our secrete basins!

    Hey guys, well going to be in the same area, drew a tag for first archery 75/751 going to be arriving out there for the opener coming from New Hampshire. Really looking forward to this hunt been planning for over a year. Been doing a lot of research on the weminuchee seems like there might be some nice looking basins to check out. Can't wait to get out there and sounds like there might be a few other guys on here that are going to be in th same area at the same time. Been checking out spotting scopes wondering if anybody has any recommendations, not much need for spotting scopes in NH, been checking out the Nikon ED 50, any suggestions or alternative scopes you guys recommend checking out?

    The ed50 will work great for a CO high country hunt.
