Gunnison, CO area GMU 55 advice

Hey Guys,
Myself and a few friends plan on hunting the Gunnison, CO area, second season for Elk this fall. Does anyone have any advice? I have been hunting in Idaho for a number of years and did hunt unit 55 with a guide a long time ago. The Colorado Dept. of Wildlife statistics show a pretty good herd in the area, but I have no idea as to the number of hunters in that area, any help would be appreciated.

As a general rule, 2nd season is the most heavily pressured. However, this is the first year third season will be two weekends, so that may change. Hunter numbers aren't that bad there, as there there is a lot of public land to spread out.

Where or what area did you hunt with a guide? It is a large area and I only hunt a small portion of it.
