Colorado sections 36 and 45

I am going elk hunting this year with my uncle and I was wondering if anybody has hunted these sections in the past or has any kind of a report for these areas.

I have hunted them both and have hunted unit 36 a lot. What season will you be hunting? Rifle? Bow?

The area we hunted in 45, Camp Hale was a waste of time and energy, a lot of that area was above 11K.
Unit 36 gets a lot of pressure but Elk can be harvested. We hunted the East, Northeast side of Red & White Mountain. The Elk Stay on top, on the north side of the Bowl. If people don't go into their bedding area, they'll stay up there, if they do get spooked out of their bedroom area they will head northeast to Piney River and stay down deep in that canyon, usally after a week or so they'll work their way back to the top of R&W Mountain. We use to get into them almost everyday but most of the hunters up there now hunt them wrong and screws it up for the rest of us and that why I quit hunting R&W. I would hunt Moniger Creek up to its headwaters and then go south to the top and hunt the ridge area but stay out of the area by the pond that is in the middle of the thick forested area, that is their bedroom community. Hunt edges of thr bowl too, sometimes they will stay in there.
Have a good hunt and let me know how your elk hunt goes,
Jeff
