Pac in GMU 41/42/421 3rd season Mule Deer

My budy and I will be hiking in to get off the roads and plan on taking camp with us. We will be hunting in GMU 41/42/421 3rd Rifle, but have never hunted the area. I have a call into the biologist for the Grand Mesa unit but have been playing phone tag and looking for some guidence. Looking at the area I see Battlement Mesa looks good but Will I be off the roads for a few miles?

Has anyone hunted the area and have some advice or insight. From what I read we should be lookingat 8500 to 10000ft or should I go lower? Plus we will probably get an elk tag.

Thanks in advance,

jdewall, I do not know the north side of the Grand Mesa that well, but I would hunt lower depending on the weather and if the does have moved down. The Battlements used to produce some great bucks, but I have not been over there for years (just over 20). Are you stuck on the Batllement area or are you up for other options?

I do know the west and southern sides very well and there are many places to pack in and many deer and elk. Let me know.

Good luck and good hunting!

elkkill,

We are open. The Battlement Mesa area was really just a large area that looks like we could get off the roads. Lower elevations probably makes more sense especialy that late,do you know of areas we can pack or concentrate on for a few days? My Buddy plans on getting bull tag if still available. I'm looking for a buck myself.

Look forward to the reply.

J
