    Unit 18,28 Colorado

    Anyone have any good info on hunting in these areas? I'm looking for animal quality elk, deer, and how the terrain is in these areas. Any insight would be greatly appreciated

    I've been looking into the area east of granby lake, I'm just wondering what the quality of animals is there and how it is to hunt the later seasons mainly 3rd and 4th

    3rd and 4th season are by far the best times to hunt 18 and 28 in my opinion. Elk can be tuff for the man that wont hunt hard you will have to go deep in do to extremely high population of hunters. Deer, i think is the most under estimated areas in the state. The population is growing therefore many extra tags have been given out last year. I feel that there is no reason why you couldnt hunt hard and shoot a 180plus inch deer and 280plus elk in these areas. There is a lot of public ground east of granby and some great hunting that way. I hope this helps.

    I have been hunting this area since I was old enough to hunt big game! If you are willing to get off the beaten path there are some great animals to be had. It seems the deer quality is definitely back where it used to be. There have always been a lot of elk but the big boys are always less in numbers. I feel that there has been an increase in large bulls over the past few years. A lot of hunters in the area as well. Let me know if I can help you further.

    I hunted unit 18 this year with a Muzzleloader for elk. I did not see a ton of elk, but I was fortunate to take a nice herd bull. With this unit, there are some good animals, but only if you work very hard. The terrain was steep and pretty dangerour at times, but that is where the elk were. Lots of up and down and miles on the boots, but it was worth it for me.
