Elk Hunting in Unit 38

We are going archery elk hunting in unit 38 the first week of the season. I have been doing some scounting but find very little sign.

Does anyone know where the elk concentration would be in this area? I have shot some deer but have had 0 luck on the elk.

A friend said to hunt near Ward?

Any help would be appreciated.

Elk Hunting in Unit 38

I have never hunted in 38, but I have hunted sheep mountain in 37 muzzleloader season a few years ago. There was sign everywhere. After hunting for a day or so I started looking real close and realized the sign was a week or so old. I never seen an elk in 4 days. This could be a spot to check early in archery season.

Unit 38 in Colorado

I think we are both talking Colorado. I was at James Peak wilderness yesterday and saw 0 sign up there.

The best I remember I went up rt 9 from Dillon, Colorado to just north of the Green Mountain Resevoir, then took a left on #10 rd that runs west along spring creek. Its a gravel road with a few switchbacks. A few miles in is were I hunted. I had a map that called this sheep mountain.
I had coorinates for this but I left my batteries in the old garmin for a couple years and one of them turned south on me. I got it to work again after some difficulty but all my locations were gone.
Hope this helps, good luck.
