Will be relying on our research for narrowing down GMUs combined with input from my neighbor who grew up in Durango. His parents still live there and normally conduct a family elk hunt every year during the rifle season. He's a wealth of knowledge and already a big help.
Maps and Google Earth will do the rest until we can actually hit the trails.
Appreciate the input thus far. Will definitely pick up some TAG bags. There base model is cheaper than the Carnivore II, has more bags, but doesn't appear to come with a tarp, which is not that big of a deal to me.
