Re: Co unit 481

I hunted that unit with a cow tag in 2008 during the 2nd rifle season. My best suggestion is to be in shape. That is a tough unit to hunt. I killed my cow at over 10,000 feet and that is after they had come down some. We hunted to the treeline a couple of days. I thought I was in good shape when I went out there, but found out quick it's some rough country.

certainly is rough country

and steep, steep, steep, but the highest peak in the lower 48 isn't even in Colorado.  Sorry, don't mean to nitpick.
