You're still lost in Colorado aren't you?

:::]]   37 is both north and south of I70.  Loveland is nowhere near there, but Loveland Pass and Lovelenad ski resort is.  The town of Loveland is in unit 20, which is draw only.  Dillon and Silverthorne are the major towns in 37.

Now get out there and scout!

Scouting

I plan on heading out to the southern portion of Unit 37 early tomorrow morning.  Does anyone have a suggestion on an area to scout.  I am not looking for secret spots, just a general area.  Unit 45 and 371 are also on m list as possibilities.

should have done this months ago

you should have been scouring the maps and google earth first.  Next step is to spend a day or two just driving around, learning the roads.  However, doing it during hunting season isn't bad because you can see where everyone else is.  Problem is, without doing the map research, you will have a hard time figuring out where the pressure will be pushing the elk, for you to then scout. 

But if you want vague areas to start with, try the wilderness areas, there's plenty of it to work with.

unit 37

Also includes 28 which is better hunting. runs norht of Silverthorne. Not bad if you go to cataract campgound but you have to stay north of the creek and go up higher in eagles nest wilderness.

See the GMU maps
