Colorado GMU 4th season

I'm curious to know what people think of Colorado GMUs 79, 80, 81 or 82 as possible left over limited draw candidates for a cow tag during 4 rifle season.  Have people had much success in these units in the past?  Thanks!

That's another tough one

I don't like 79 at all, and am not very high on 80. 

It would be 81 or 82 for me.  But they are pretty different types of units, your access in 81 is probably better, less mid and low elevation private refuges, very good success rates in both areas, better bulls in 82, but not bad in 80 or 81 either.

One of the big kickers here is the difficulty of the land in 82.  Unless you were planning a 4th backcountry hunt, I'd go with 81
