Default Colorado Elk

Struck out on NM elk this year. Want to do an OTC, DIY Elk hunt in Colorado this year. Any suggestions on a unit? I like 75 and 751 but they both look rough. Planning a spike camp type hunt with 25 years of elk hunting experience without ever hunting Colorado.

Lots of those SW Colorado otc units went to draw units this year. Not sure if you were aware of that or not. Might make sure that unit is still otc before you waste too much time looking into it.

Depending on what season you plan on hunting depends on if 751 is going to be worth the time to even go. Pm me if you have any questions.

I drew CO unit 71 for bull this year. It was an OTC unit last year. Will be there Sept 8-16 so I get a few days ahead of the muzzleloader guys. Hope everyone on here headed up fills their tags this year!

Edit- looks like 75/751 are included in the new draw units this year so no OTC archery. I believe they still have OTC rifle though....

The further north, the crowded the units seem to be.

75 and 751 are not OTC anymore they are draw units.

Pretty sure that's just first season isn't it? I could be wrong but I thought most if not all otc units went draw on first season but could still do otc on the other seasons.

Might check and see if there are any leftover tags. We put in drawing for leftover tags in 78. Deadline to enter for leftover tags is July 7.

Archery went from OTC to draw first and fourth rilfe have always been a draw as has muzzleloader. Second and third rifle are still OTC.

I knew 1st and 4th were draw in that unit. I just thought you were talking the entire unit was a draw on every season now. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
