Colorado GMU 63 for Bull Elk

I would like to get opinions on Colorado GMU 63 for bull elk for the 3rd rifle season. Namely, how crowded does the unit get, what are the elk herds like, what is the terrain like, and how much pubilc land is there?

about average

The unit gets some pressure near the roads, but there's only a few roads with plenty of public land outside of those.  Not sure what you mean by what are the elk herds like.  There's elk, probably not a ton of older bulls, but fair numbers.  Plenty of public land

Thank you for the reply. It sounds like 63 is the kind of unit that a guy could kill a bull in if he is willing to work at it. In other words, get out of his truck, put some miles on his boots, glass and scout before hand. Is that a fair statement?

You can't go wrong doing that for any unit.

True. I just want to make sure it is huntable from the respect that the roads are far enought apart that leg work stands a chance of paying off versus a unit that has roads too close together to accomplish this.

Unit 63

Just curious how the unit worked out for you? My buddy has a 3rd season deer tag for this year, don't know a whole lot about the unit but trying to do some research. I will be tagging along with a bull tag.
