I think it would be a good choice. I think the odds of getting a big buck would be better 3rd or 4th season when they move down to their winter grounds.

Unit 142 is NOT Fort Carson. It is the Pinyon Canyon Manuever Area. They are two very, very different areas.

I will be (elk) hunting the adjacent (to Pinyon Canyon) state owned Chancellor Ranch in the next two weeks. I'll let you know if I see any decent bucks. When I scouted there in August I encountered two serious deer hunters who very familiar with 142. Their opinion was that the quality had declined over the past few years.
