best game units in colorado flat tops wilderness area

What are the best over the counter and draw units in the Colorado Flat tops wilderness area for bowhunting? We are looking for remote places. We backpack in and don't care how far or difficult.

There isn't a place in far enough where you will escape the pressure in the Flat Tops during rifle season. They are not limited during the rifle seasons at all, but during archery and muzzy, half the units are limited:12,23,24,33 are by draw only, with one tag being the northern portions in 12,23,24 the other tag being the southern in 23,24,33. 12 still has very high pressure during archery season, but 23 and 24 have fairly reasonable hunter densities at about 1.6 to and 1.8 per square mile respectively.

Having hunted in the flat tops, I can tell you that what exbio says is true. You will not get "remote" in the white river area. If you want remote, look in other places in CO. Good luck.
