Colorado Area 41 Elk

About to hunt the late season for area 41 near Rifle, CO and looking for some advice on the herd up there if anyone has hunted the area or nearby. We will be on foot and packing in for the week, any input would be greatly appreciated.

Colorado Area 41 Elk

A co-worker just returned from the 2nd season from there. They did not have any luck. Weather was too warm. Game Wardens said the area had been pretty slow since it was between seasons and to warm. The whole state needs some snow bad. Until some snow falls the elk are going to stay in the high meadows and dark timber. So look high as possible.

Good Luck!
