Hello fellow hunters! I am a Colorado native who has hunted GMUs 65 and 181 exclusively over the past 19 years. These GMUs have been good to me and I am happy to share my knowledge of them with anyone interested in hunting there. I am hoping to find anyone who could do the same for me as it relates to GMUs 23 and 24 (we will also be able to hunt in units 11,12, and 211 so any info on those would be welcome, and appreciated, as well).
The situation is this: In addition to my 2nd season deer tags in 181 and my late season cow tag in 65, this year am going to be hunting with a good friend (one new to hunting) during the 4th season. As I hadn't had contact with this friend for quite some time, I wasn't aware of his desire to go hunting with me and we didn't solidify plans until a few weeks ago, thus the inability to go scout as I normally do. I have spent some time in the White River NF, but never during hunting season. I have pored over maps and Google Earth and am leaning toward hunting the southern and southwestern boundary of GMU 24, but would like to get input from any and all who have hunted this and the other units I've mentioned.
I pride myself in doing research prior to my hunts, and, frankly, I feel a bit sheepish about asking my fellow Coloradans and others for information this way, but again, I am happy to return the favor for anyone looking to hunt the areas I've used for years.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and for any responses you are willing and able to share.
I have read through many posts on the site and am impressed with the abundant and accurate knowledge of hunting in the West that I have found. I look forward to sharing in the future.
I wish success for all in their hunting pursuits...
