colorado units 70, 71, 74, 75

i'm not exactly sure which one of these i'd go for, but i'm looking for a unit with lots of public land. if i'm not mistaken, the gunnison and sanjuan NF's run through these units, so there should be lots of ground to hunt. i'm leaning towards 71 & 74 though.

but is hunting here some bad joke that the residents keep to themselves, or are they quality units?

i'm not looking for anything special, just a good time in the great outdoors. maybe a 4x4 or better bull. i guess.

there's been several threads on these units recently

I think was one titled hunting the San Juans, others referred specifically to those units.  They are all decent units.  Fairly popular.  70 and 71 are more mesa and canyon type country.  74 and 75 are more mountainous.  Plenty of public land.  It just depends on what you're looking for exactly.  And yes, lots of guys will not talk about their preferred units in a public forum.

A buddy of mine killed a nice

A buddy of mine killed a nice bull in 71 near Rico a couple years ago. You have a good chance of being successful in both 71 and 74 if you hunt HARD! Those SanJuans are some rugged mountains so you better be in shape. 70 is a good unit also it has lots of BLM to hunt. 

Good Luck

fortunately, i've been

fortunately, i've been training for a sheep hunt, but i didn't get my tag. and i really though this would be the year.

i'm almost 27, and a muscular 185 pounds, so i want to get the sheep  while i have energy to rebound during the hunt. i want to enjoy it, not spend all my free time in agony worrying about if my knees or hips will give out over the next rise. but sadly, most of the sheep and goat tags i'll get in my life will be 20 or more years from now. after i'm all wore out from years of construction, horses... and marriage.
