    Gunnison Moisture

    For the scouting I've done this summer, I'm not seeing deer at the low elevations. I would start at the quakies and higher.

    Gunnison Moisture

    It's bad. Almost no rain the entire summer. Sage brush is not looking good. It could be a tough winter for the elk and deer herds. Higher elevations seem to have better forage right now.

    Scouting - Antelope Opener, who has been out and who is IN?!

    I drew my 1st antelope tag this year - muzzle loader buck in 551. There are only a few dozen antelope in the unit, but I'm really looking forward to the hunt. I've been scouting all summer. Nothing for the record books, but I hope to put some meat in the freezer.

    What a shite show. The whole CPW site is confusing and sent me in circles trying to find the page to buy a tag. I finally got logged in and ready, only to have to re-login when I hit the go button. I got nothing.

    unit 67 3rd

    You can stay in town and easily hunt 67. A 10 minute drive will get you on public land. Low temps in November sometimes drop into the single digits, sometimes even below zero. Keep this in mind if you plan to camp. The Gunnison Basin deer herds are not what they used to be. I think a...

    Places to stay in or around Gunnison

    For eats, I like The Dive, High Alpine Brewery, The W, Blackstock Bistro. Burgers are good at the Power Stop. Lots of lodging options. Gunnison Inn west of town might work.

    Pronghorn Unit 67

    The Gunnison basin has a very small population of pronghorn. I think the only reason it takes so many points is that there are very few tags available. For the points it takes there are much better units. This winter has been about average for snow and temps, so I think winter kill for all...

    Unit 62 Recap

    I was hunting down low, close to the hay fields. That's where I was seeing the most deer. No rut behavior from the few bucks I did see.

    Unit 62 Recap

    I spent a week in 62 for 3rd season deer. I had the same tag 3 years ago. I agree that the herd numbers have dropped significantly. I hunted every day and hit multiple areas and saw less than a dozen bucks. The only 2 good bucks I saw were on private. I won't be going back.

    LAST EDITED ON Oct-28-19 AT 08:24AM (MST)[p]Snowing this morning with about 4" in town. Supposed to snow for the next 3 days. Temps are supposed to drop below zero. This is early to get this much snow and cold. Should get the animals moving lower. I agree with the strategy to keep moving...

    Need advise for next years adventure- Muzzleloder 551ELK or 74/741Elk

    One thing to be aware of, the CPW cut back the number of elk tags in 551.

    Leftover sale......

    So the proposal is to require a 2nd application for the 2nd draw, which means paying another app fee. Figures the CPW would pinch us for more money.

    Gunnison area snow fall

    Snow keeps falling in the Gunnison basin. About an inch of new overnight. Temps have been warm and it's heavy wet snow. The cabin we care take in the West Elks had 52" on the ground 2 weeks ago. We're heading back up this weekend to shovel the roof again. Wouldn't surprise me to see another...

    CO moose draw stats

    I have a question about the application process. Once you hit 3 points, can you apply without buying a preference point? Meaning, can I just stay at 3 points and still apply every year?

    As I remember there aren't many spots along the road to camp. You'll want to get there early to get a spot. Try the Waterfall Creek area on top for elk.
