Colorado Gmu 19

Im a new hunter (2nd season) and this is my second year hunting this unit. ive done several scouting trips and have seen plenty of sign and even found a few wallows, but ive yet to see a single elk. does anyone happen to know this area or have a suggestions into another GMU i could try for next year. any advice is appreciated. Im also thinking about buying a leftover deer tag for 3rd season in area 38, does anyone know anything about this unit?

Welcome

First off welcome to the site. As you can see there are allot of good folks here willing to help you out. Are you from Colorado of traveling from out of state? Cannot help you with unit 19 or 38 as I have not hunted those areas for elk. Hunted the BLM land in 38 off US 6 thru the canyon for deer several years ago. It is some very steep terrain but is full of deer. If you are local talk to the local warden and they might have some suggestions for you. Again welcome to the site and let us know how you do and photos are always welcome.

Welcome to the site!  Welcome

Welcome to the site!  Welcome to the wonderful, and addictive world of hunting. I would suggest finding someone near you who you can tag along with, and learn some of the ins and outs of the sport.

I don't have any specific info on that area, but best of luck with the deer tag!  Be sure to post a follow up story and photos, whether succesful or not!

thanks for the info guys. i

thanks for the info guys. i spoke to a few friends and found out a friend actually goes muzzle loader in unit 29. Probably gonna tag along with him next year, assuming we draw tags. as far as the deer goes im not sure if its gonna fit into my budget anymore. We got invited to go antelope hunting in unit 117 with land owner tags.
