Starting the early planning stages for a do-it –yourself Colorado elk/ mule deer hunt for the third season gun Nov.1-9 for my son who is 12. I started by calling the Colorado big game planner of parks and wildlife. He gave me limited information sending me in the direction of unit 54 Gunnison area. Reason for choosing the third season, my son will also draw for a cow tag and will be able to use it in this season. I started to pull maps and call ranches for information. What I have found out so for is, that if you own premium public land access and roads into the wildness area, that can cost up to 1500 a gun. I need some serious advice or your experience on different areas (GMU”s) that offer accessible roads from a hotel or cabin due to wife coming, any information on area 54, horse or ATV in different GMU areas, and areas that rent pack horses to retrieve game. Any help would be appreciated; this is what makes a fun trip 'going in the blind'.
