Colorado unit 36

Hello all, I'm new to the forum and new to mule deer hunting as I'm from WV. I'll be hunting unit 36 in Colorado this fall in the second rifle season and would love any advice. I'm not afraid to walk long distances or work hard for a good hunt. Thanks in advance

For unit 36 second season I

For unit 36 second season I would hunt high along the ridge lines.  Unit 36 is a major migration route for mule deer from the Gore Creek divide east of Vail and if it snows up high they should be moving towards lower country.  I have seen book deer all the way from Edwards to above Vail but it is usually during November but they are there in October. 

Which way are you planning on accessing the area?  You have the Piny Ranch road out of Vail, and then the Red & White road out of Avon, or the access road off of state road 131 north of Wolcot.  The road off of HWY 131 goes through a lot of private property and there is a lot of private in unit 36 so you will have to be aware of that.  Also go prepared for anything weather wise.  You can have temperatures in the 80's one day and 3' of snow the next along with rain, and the roads turn to gumbo when they are wet.

I believe the group of us will be staying in Vail. But I may do some overnight backpacking
