Colorado unit 67

My two teenage boys and myself will be hunting Colorado unit 67 during the second rifle season for elk. This will be our first time in this unit. I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on where to go. We plan on scouting the unit this month.

Unit 67 Hunt

Hi There,
I see you and your two sons have 2nd season tags for Unit 67 I have hunted that unit for the past 10 years its a great area I have 1st season tags this year with my group two bulls and two cows I usually go 1st, 3rd, 4th. The 1st season is good because they havent been shot at yet but 3rd and 4th can be the best of all if you have alot of snow. I will be heading out there on Oct 5th to hunt 1st season. What kind of terrain are you looking to hunt I know quite a few good areas but some of them are really high elevations and some of them are a long way in to about an 1-2 hour walk. I have alot of topo maps as well full of areas that I have taken elk in the past 10 years.

Let me know what you are looking for as far as terrain and what tags you have some areas are better than others for bulls and some are better for cows.
Another zone that I have hunted for years is Unit 55 and that is a really good zone as well and lots of elk but you have to go 1st or 4th season only to crowded with the over the counter 2nd and 3rd.

Colorado unit 67

Hey,
Thanks for responding! My boys have bull tags and I have a cow tag. My focus is on the boys, I want them to have a chance. I have taken several elk in my day, so the only thing I want is for the boys to get a chance at a bull. As far terrian goes, we will go where the elk are. It does not matter what kind of terrian it is. Any help or suggestions you might have would be greatly appreciated. We have hunted unit 81 the last eight years or so for elk. Looking forward to a little less pressure from people.

Hey milehighelk,
This is a little off topic but anyway, I've hunted 81 many years but not for about the last ten. I'm thinking of hunting it again next year muzzleloader season. I was wondering how the hunting has been there in recent years. Thanks in advance!

We have always hunted the rifle seasons so I do not know how the muzzleloader season is. But we have seen less and less elk every year. The area around Jim creek has been over run with people. I have heard the southern end of the unit is still pretty good. Hope this helps.
