The whole central portion of 231 is routt national forest, so land access shouldn't be an issue. If your hunting late in the season, i'd stay lower in elevation, 10k ft at ripple creek is most likely too high for the elk later in the season, especially if it has snowed.
good luck, routt and white river are nice areas, some areas (like trappers lake) south out of 231 have been hit hard by fires in recents years.
I hunt 231 every year actually. Mostly for elk. Last year I got a big 6x6 bull. Just got back from up there yesterday. Got another good size bull but it is just a 5x5. Not bad though because I'm in it for the meat mostly. As far as deer go, I have seen some monster bucks up there. Just not a real fan of the taste of deer from the hills compared to deer from the plains out in the eastern Co plains.
When calling coyotes, more often than not they will circle on a target they are
coming into and approach from the downwind side. Presumably they do this in
order to align what they smell, with what they are hearing.
This means that you should always have your downwind side camouflaged and have
an open shooting lane. If the area is heavily covered the coyote could come in
take a look and be gone, with you none the wiser.
