    Unit 70 or 62 2nd season elk?

    Narrowed it down to one of these two units for our 2nd season otc elk hunt. This will be our first trip hunting Colorado, so we have zero first hand knowledge. A friend from work has hunted 70 with marginal success and can point us to a starting point to hunt. Kind of interested in 62 also after doing some research, but looking for more input. Not looking for anyone's secret spot, but just info like difference in hunting pressure etc.
    If you're familiar with those 2 units, what advice would you give a Colorado greenhorn?

    I would hunt 62 as only about 1/2 of 70 is really elk country (the eastern 1/2)

    Thanks for the input CC. The area my buddy has info on is in the eastern part of the zone, around Naturita. Still drawn to 62 for other reasons, but we'll see. I plan on getting back Tue/Wed to look the areas over before opening morning.
