A buddy and I are doing are first DIY elk hunt in Unit 15 in Sept. We will hike 3 or more miles in and set up our spike camp and hunt from there. No road hunting and no ATV. We were looking at the Sarvis Creek area, Silver Creek, Gore Mountain, and Gore Pass area. I am not looking for any honey holes and I am not after a trophy. I want elk meat! and a good chance at an elk. I have reviewed the stats and map on the CO DOW website.
What I am looking for is the little helpful hints from people who have been to this area ( Oak creek, Yampa.) Where to avoid/ tree kill/ widow makers. Where is the heaviest hunted areas? Places to camp, or park. Good trail heads? Places to buy dry ice? Stories of your hunt in this area, Nice places to stop and eat or whatever... Which area would you recommend? Anything would help.
