Hey, newbie here trying to plan a 2009 muzzleloader elk hunt in Colorado. At present time my buddy and I have 5 pref. points. and are going to try to draw in unit 67 next year. If successful it will be my first elk hunt, my buddies 2nd. We are leaning towards the southern tip of the unit near the La Garita Wilderness area, it sounds like tough terrain (especially to a couple of flatlanders) but we do have plenty of time to try to prepare for it. My buddy wants to stay in Creede and then drive to our hunting unit in the mornings.....but I may be able to convince him to camp, especially since there looks to be limited access from the south.
Does anybody have any experience in this area? Is anyone going there this year? I'm not looking for anyone to put us in their hotspot, just a nudge in the right direction. Any input is greatly appreciated,
