hunting in colorado and unit 16?

Any one hunted unit 16 before? especially for deer? I have a tag for the early season (oct.1-9) and have never hunted that season and was wondering what to expect. also how has the weather been this summer is it normal or still dry? will the deer still be up high or on their way down? what effects do opening day have on the local deer? do they calm back down after a few days or move to private land or ?? thanks guys

I have never hunted that unit before sorry. As for the weather, it's been a pretty hot summer with about average rainfall. More than likely the deer will be high, although I have seen a lot at lower elevation. The next couple weeks will probably play a big role. Keep an eye on the the weather in that area is possible. It takes a while for them to calm back down, opening weekend would probably be your best bet. Good luck
