Colorado Deer Units 18,28,37,371 Advice

Hi all, I am new to this forum… and for the most part, new to hunting deer in Colorado. However we have hunted Elk in Gunnison and deer throughout Wyoming and Nebraska. This year I drew 2nd season buck-only for these units (18, 28, 37, & 371). I am taking 3 of my favorite guys with me, my brother and my two sons. These 4 units consist of thousands of acres of National Forest access and is almost overwhelming to decide where to even start. I have scouted some land around Grandby, Fraser and Hot Sulphur Springs but so far I haven’t found a good location to base out of. Last year when scouting elk, we saw a lot of deer in unit 28 that is why I entered it in my draw selections initially. 

Does anyone on here have some recommendations where to get started? We will be on foot (no horses or ATVs). These young boys have been hunting with me for years so we are not worried about covering some ground. But do you guys recommend basin areas, water areas, highland, dark timber, etc?

We have all the time in the world and but I am just uncertain where to base from and could really use a friendly tip!  

And yes I have scoured this forum and absorbed as much as I can from your previous posts. Just looking for some new ideas.

 

Thanks all

Your problem is asking for information on specific units.  While there are some that may of hunted them the odds are slim.
