Unit 70

Just wondering if anyone has some general information on this area. I am going during archery season and I was wondering what can be expected any information will be much appreciated

South out of norwood is national forest. The south eastern portion of 70 is also national forest around telluride and east out of sawpit. All of unit 70 that I have seen is beautiful. Toward the eastern end it climbs into mount sneffels (a 14k footer) and the south east goes up to mount wilson (another 14k footer) so that country gets up there a ways.

I know folks like to hunt around norwood, redvale and there are elk and mule deer, but the exact location that they hunt I'm not sure.

Might try the western side going toward the Utah border: gypsum gap, slick rock, and egnar. Although you will need to dig up quads to see what is public (blm) and private, because I have no idea.

I took a cow elk from Unit 70 last year, South of Norwood. As bitmasher says, it's National Forest down there so no problems hunting or camping (open fires may be illegal--need to check that). I've hunted around Dolores Peak and seen deer, elk, and bear.

I don't know, but the dow's harvest stats will give you some indication.
