I drew a tag for unit 43 in Colorado, south of Glenwood Springs. I was wondering if anyone had any advice about the area, or might know some landowners open to giving permission to hunt for a trespass fee. Thanks!
I did the unit 96 draw unit a couple of times and had success with Rio's on the river. I wanted to try unit 43 for something different. I researched it and apparently there is a good population of Merriam's in this unit. I've hunted Merriam's successfully in other units so I have an idea of what to look for. Was just hoping someone familiar with 43 might impart some knowledge if the area.
I have a system I use in Whitetail hunting during the rut that seems to work for me. When I make a mock scrape in the area I wish to hunt I will place a couple of 35mm
film canisters (film removed of course) in the scrape after I have cleared out all leaves and other debris. The film canisters are filled with cotton balls and saturated with doe in heat urine. This keeps the urine from soaking in the ground and can be refreshed on each trip if needed. I will also use the tarsal gland of the buck...
