When you input the

When you input the coordinates into Google Earth don't worry about the degrees, minutes, and seconds.  Just leave a space between the numbers such as 44 76 112N which is the latitude  then the longitude or second set of numbers and do the same.  That should take you to where you want to go.

Google Earth won't fly to your coordinates

The coordinates are in UTMs, not lat, long, though you can convert them with various programs.  The easiest thing to do is just change your settings on Google Earth to UTMs under the Tools menu, then scroll with your mouse.

However, the Colorado Hunt Maps will now fly to UTMs.  Do not type in the E or N, just the six digit Easting followed by the 7 digit northing with just a space in between and it'll do it.
