Secondly, there should be lots of information here for you to filter through for that unit and elk in general. Lots of Colorado hunters here.
Thirdly (Is that a word), stick around awhile, and throw up some photos and stories. I will be waiting for a report from you, because I am planning a DIY elk and deer combo hunt for the same season in unit 62 next year. It will be interesting to see how you do.
Welcome to BGH. This is a great place with a lot of helpful people. I have not hunted in 62 but know it's a pretty good unit. Use the search function up in the corner and type in Colorado 62 or something similar and you should get a bunch of info. Unit 62 gets asked about quite a bit so there has been some good stuff posted in the past that should answer most of your questions.
But I'm sure there will be others along with some first hand information as well.
Good luck with your hunt and let us know how it goes.
As a Taxidermist I look at hundreds of Whitetail Bucks every year. I know that I have seen many different ways people judge the size of racks on live deer. I think for the most part they all are pretty close. I'm going to give you some measurements that I have noticed being right on in just about every deer. We have used it in the last couple years and have only been off by about 5-6 inches. We do study the deer while bowhunting so we get a little more time to look at them....
