HOT SULPHUR SPRINGS UNIT 18 COLORADO

Changing it up this year and thinking of heading North out of Hot Sulphur 2nd rifle. Anyone have a tip or get me started in the right direction?

Re: HOT SULPHUR SPRINGS UNIT 18 COLORADO

I wouldn't go there if I were you, least of all during 2nd season. Too many hunters, not enough elk, tough terrain and vegetation to hunt them in, poor success, poor trophy quality, etc, etc. It's a popular unit more for convenience and proximity to the Front Range than because of any special quality. I don't like the Flat Tops either, but at least there's lots of elk there and high success rates.
So sorry, the right direction should be a better unit.

And I guess since you wanted tips on where to go, either go North into North Park, west to the Gore Range, South towards Vail and South Park or East to the good limited units on the Front Range like 20 or 46. I also wouldn't hunt 2nd season.
