Unit 61 Colorado elk

After 15 long years I have finally drawn a unit 61 muzzleloader elk tag.  I have been to the area once before for a week and saw a couple nice bulls but its a big rugged area.  Does anyone have any tips or info on the area that might help me out?  I'm an avid hunter, willing to put in the work to find a nice bull. Any help is much appreciated.

I have the same tag and will

I have the same tag and will be hunting with my muzzle loader while a friend is hunting them with his stick thrower.  So far we haven't done any scouting but he has hunted the unit before and wants to head down to the southern end.  From what I have heard the area above Nucla is a good area to start. 

Good luck on the hunt.

Guys, 

I am just learning the unit, but I have done two scouting trips this summer. Send me a PM if you like and I'll be happy to share what I've been learning. I am not hunting there this season, so I'd love to hear about your scouting and  hunts. I will probably archery hunt there next year.

I'm not too worried about it.  I'll get down there after July 4 and start looking.  My partner has hunted down there before and knows the area that we are planning on going into so I am going to be a little dependent on him, but he knows his stuff when it come to hunting elk.
