I just found this website while researching for my hunt and love it. There is so much great information here and after reading through many posts I can see that the community on this site is awesome.
My Dad, brother and I have 3 pp for Colorado deer. This year we are wanting to draw a tag and hunt that awesome state. We aren't really going for the best trophy area, which is obvious with only 3 pp, but we are looking to have a great quality hunt. Something with good amounts of opportunity on 130-160 class bucks.
Im hearing that unit 40 has a lot of private land. How true is that? We have all hunted the Book Cliffs unit of Utah for Deer and Bear and love it, which is why we like unit 40. It seems to be the same type of terrain and isn't very far from the Book Cliffs. We are DIY hunters and aren't afraid to hike far as far as we need with packs to get away from the crowd. Im just concerned that if there is too much private land that we may find ourselves worrying about more than trying to find an animal to harvest.
Any info on the private land there would be great! Not looking for anyones honey hole but if you had good experiences there please let me know if it would be worth our time and our points.
I read there is a bear tag that allows you to hunt them through all the deer seasons. I would like to have one in my pocket if that is true.?
