unit 421 or 31 dec cow elk

I'm planning to be home for Christmas this year and I'm wanting to buy a leftover cow tag. I will have off about 10 days over Christmas and I want to take my son out and do some elk hunt. Do you guys have any recomendations between unit 421 or 31? I'm wanting to hunt close to Grand Jct to avoid mileage. Unit 421 has a higher success but more private land and restricted access to BLM. Unit 31 has much lower harvest but more BLM. I've never hunted either unit but have peroodically worked in them about 6 years ago.

I have also been looking at SW Wyoming and they have a few leftover cow tags if I was willing to drive 5 hours and motel. But hunting in Colorado is my preference. Thanks

Which one ?


I do not know unit 421 that well, but I do know unit 31 some. In 31 most of the elk will be on private, but I do know some nasty holes to find them in. It would be a tough pack out especially if there is a lot of snow.
