Unit 23 and 24 CO 1st Rifle Season for Elk

failry new to forum.  great stuff.  I did a search for other forums for this area and got good information but i thought i post another one just to see if i can get more info. 

i am non resident so pre scoting is not going to hapen so i as much info i can get in advance is appreciated.  We have access to an ATV but hiking back in is not a problem and is prefered in some cases.  I have hunted around 7 lakes last year and i am looking for another area to hunt.  how is the hunting around Trapper Lake in the wilderness?  Any other suggestion are very much welcome.

Trappers Lake would be a good area to try, especially since it has been warm thus far.  First season doesn't have the pressure of later seasons, but it would still be good to get off the trails at least a mile or so.

Do you want to use the ATV?

Are you aware that ATVs are not allowed in the wilderness areas?  I prefer to hunt wilderness to avoid them and the people who feel dependent on roads.  The basins behind and adjacent to Trappers are a decent place to start as a day hunter.  Lot of ground to cover, but some it is also burned, so you can see pretty far at times.
