Colorado GMU 54 2nd Rifle Season Cow Elk Help

My girlfriend and I are college students and extremely avid and motivated elk hunters. In the past, harvesting a cow has saved us hundreds of dollars of food expenses and we love brain tanning as a fun hobby. For the past 3 years as of just yesterday, we have been skunked on our hunt. We backpacked 6-7 miles into soap basin for 5 days. We still have this weekend and can perhaps make it 4 miles or so with little time. We are in decent physical condition and train all year for our wapiti hunts. We are not trophy hunters, all we want is to harvest a single cow this weekend and return with money saving meat and a few steaks to give to the family for the holidays this year. ANY advice would be incredibly helpful and appreciated! Thanks guys!

Lessons Learned???

How did you guys end up doing? My hunting partner and I are planning on going to GMU 54 2nd Rifle Season in 2016. We are looking at a few different areas to hunt like the Soap Basin up to the Western Elk Wilderness area. You guys hunted GMU 54 all 3 of the past years and got nothing? Any info you learned that would help us?

Going 2016

A buddy and I are going to GMU 54 for 2nd Rifle Season Cow Elk. I'm curious how you did last year. We've been trying to do a lot of research as we're both new to elk hunting and we're from out of state, too far to drive up for scouting. Any info will be appreciated. Thanks.
