drew cow elk tag. unit 59

So I drew a limited cow elk tag for unit 59 here in Colorado and will be embarking upon my first elk hunt. Anyone have any advice on a good spot to hunt for them? I was thinking Ft.Carson since it is near by. I am in great shape so hiking is not a problem. Is calling effective for cow elk? I will be using a 30-06 if that is a factor. Thanks.

You can't hunt Cow Elk hunt on Ft. Carson with a 59 tag. Ft Carson has its own hunt code for cow elk (GMU 591)

You will want to get familiar with Phantom Canyon road.
What season?
Crags campground is a beginning starting point. In the North end of the unit elk are adapting to development. Probably some huntable access near Victor also. Access from hwy 115 will be tough, but nice if you can get it. Getting away from other people will be a problem at first in that area.
