    Elk GMU 79 success so low. Why?

    What's the deal with a limited draw unit with such low success rates. It says in the Southwest Colorado guide that it is primarily a winter range unit but success rates are low for all seasons, with 3rd season being the lowest. I was thinking of picking up a leftover license for this unit to avoid the crowds in the 2nd and 3rd season OTC units. The western side of the unit seems to hold some high elevation early season terrain with good access. So why such low success?

    Anybody hunted it before or that lives close by that can shed some light on this? I know the hunting won't be great because there are leftovers but I just don't want to be overrun with hunters.

    If its winter range maybe there are not many elk in it until there is enough snow to push them into it which could be after the seasons are over.
