CO GMU 211, 11 Elk hunting advice

I'll be hunting these units in a few weeks on my firsk Elk hunt and first trip to Colorado.  Does anybody have any last minute advice for these units?  I have no idea what to expect really.

Don't expect it to be anything like you've read

11 and 211 are not exactly the kind of mountains you picture as elk country.  There are elk there, but it's not super high elevation, backcountry wilderness stuff.  Expect scrub oaks and P-J, some mixed aspen and pine stands too, but not a lot unless you're over 8,000 feet.  Road access is very good throughout most of the area, no real need to hike 6 miles anywhere.  Pick a parcel, hunt it, and if there's nothing fresh, move on quickly.
