Colorado GMU 54 Third Season

Hey Jim here. Im new to elk hunting and am going to Colorado GMU 54 (Gunnison area) Third season (NOV 5-11th). WOuld like some advice on late season hunts and where to go in 54. I did some map scouting and plan on splitting up into two pairs. I was looking at the area around Red Mountain lake and Flat top in the eastern side of 54. ALos I have read in the forums that during the late season the elk like to stay in the timber durin the day on north facing slopes. is this right.?. I just need some advice on how to go about this. Been hunting for deer never elk. We plan on being set up before sun up in our areas on opening day for third season, but I just need to know how to go about it and where. Thanks

I hunted Flat Top 7 years ago and will never go back.

It was overrun with people who (it seemed) were all hunting off of ATV's.

There's a lot of elk there but also a lot of private land they can escape to.

the road into the area is/was pretty horrible and hiking up Flattop was an adventure (but not near as much of one coming off of it in the evening!)

good luck!
