Archery Elk Colorado unit 62

Hey, everyone its been a while but I am back at planning another hunting trip.  Due to tags we are forced to look at a new area to hunt.  Just wondering if any one would be willing to help me out.  I am looking for any info. on access to national forest.  What might we expect terrain wise.  And just general feedback.  Thanks everybody I look forward to your feed back

Unit 62

Shawn, I hunted unit 62 back in 2001 out of Montrose. It held elk but be ready for a hard hunt. The elk come up on the mesa at night and go deep in the morning once the pressure hits. I met a rancher who was running cows and horses on the unit and his suggestion to me was take a skillet with you when you go down to get them because it will be the only way to get them out. Now that was an exaggeration but it was appropriate for the area. I camped and hunted arounf Bull run road. Buy a turkey tag across the counter because you will see flocks everywhere. Also, the guy down from me had his camp ruffed up by a bear (he cleaned his camp up outside with a kitchen towel). Lots of BIG deer on this unit as it it a limted entry draw for deer. Unit 61 across the road is limted entry for Elk so be prepared to see trophy deer! Hope this helped, and good luck.

Thanks for the feedback

Thanks for the feedback UtahRaider!  A little discouraging, but thats just some of the stuff we have to deal with as out of state hunters.  Just curious have you ever hunted any of the OTC archery units up north of Glennwood Springs?

No I have only hunted unit

No I have only hunted unit 62. You should see elk and have a chance in 62 if you are willing to go down and get them.
