I drew either sex elk tags for the October 14, elk season. I drew these tags on the third round. I am in the process of going over typographical maps and aerial photographs. I am planning on arriving 4 days before opening day with my hunting partner and we will be scouting. At present, I am leaning toward hunting the highest elevations around Baxter and Douglas Passes, and the high ground either side of route 139.
I am looking for detailed information from anyone who is familiar with this area. I am also looking for gas stations and grocery stores on route 139 between Rangely and Douglas Pass area.
