Hey, this is my first post, but I've been following the threads for several months. I was just wondering if anyone had an opinion on whether to hunt unit 14 in the Mt. Zirkel wilderness area, or the West Elk wilderness in unit 53 of Colorado. We will be bowhunting the first couple of weeks in September for about 10 days. None of us have been elk hunting before and are looking for a place that will give us the best opportunity to shoot anything. These are the two units we've been looking at, but are willing to go anywhere if people have any advice about other areas.
