Elk Hunting in Colorado GMU 36 - Eagle County
Large blocks of private land in GMUs 35 and 36 provide refuge areas and can make hunting difficult.
Similar Nearby Elk Units
Elk are well distributed in all Middle Park units. Bull to cow ratios are good because the area is fairly steep and heavily timbered. Generally, trophy bulls are rare (a few are taken every year) because bulls are managed for hunter opportunity.
Eagle and Grand
Elk are scattered from about 7,000ft to above timberline. As hunting pressure increases, they seek the deeper canyons and dark timber areas way from roads.
