I went out opening weekend over by Signal Butte, North of Divide. The ATVs and just stupid hunters walking to their stands at 7am drove me mental. Needless to say I won't be going back to that area. However, I am looking at an area West of Monument, between FR 300 and 323, several miles North of Farish. Does anyone have an experience with this area? I mainly chose this because it is fairly thick and fewer roads/atv trails. I have google earthed practically the whole GMU and generally look for water with bedding area nearby and as far away from roads as I can practically get.
I am determined to bag an elk this year, however, I am a cadet at the Air Force Academy, so I can only get out on the weekends, and generally have to stay somewhat close. I would appreciate any advice anyone has. Thanks guys.
