I will be archery hunting Colorado unit 61 next year and want to begin scouting soon. I would appreciate any information or tips on general areas to start. It's a big unit and any info would be appreciated. Thanks

I am rifle hunting the third

I am rifle hunting the third season down there this year for a cow. Quinton gave me some good starting points, but we should trade info down the road on our scouting trips. I will be heading down there over Labor Day weekend, and then again before the season my season (Nov 1-9) starts up.

I made one trip already, but

I made one trip already, but the road was only open to Divide Forks Campground so I didn't get too far. I am hoping to get over there again in a few weeks. I'll let you know when I get back.

61 scouting

you been down to 61 again yet this summer? i am heading down over labor day weekend, and i am hearing a lot about the southern end of the plateau now, around Sanborn Park. i cant decide where we will scout, so maybe we will try the north end one day, and the south end another. but that could be overly ambitious. Elkkill pointed me to some good trails up in the NW corner, so we will probably start there. happy to report back on what we find. looking forward to getting down there and checking out the unit.

I did manage one more

I did manage one more scouting trip earlier this summer. Made it as far south as Tabeguache Creek area, but not to Sanborn Park. Saw one really nice bull near Bucktail Creek. I think you will find elk just about everywhere you go. I am very interested to hear what you see over Labor Day as that is during bow season which is when I plan on hunting next year. I'm interested in how many camps you see and what you hear in the north as I have gotten to know that area a little. I may do another short trip between now and Labor Day. I will probably look a little further south this time. I will let you know if I make it as far as Sanborn Park. I will send a private message if I have anything specific and woud ask you to do the same after your trip. Thanks and good luck.

I have a tag for 2nd season

I have a tag for 2nd season this year. I have made two trips down there so far and want to make a few more but some external factors may not allow that. I would be curious to know what you would see around labor day as well. I have been looking mostly north and south of the Windy point area. Looks very promising. Saw a very nice bull around Starvation Point. Seen a lot of cows up high also. When we were there last they was cattle all over the place.
