Study the Colorado Division of Wildlife web site, they pretty much tell you where the elk are located at different times of the season. I plan to hunt muzzle loader so there won't be much difference in elk location between the two seasons. This is a tough unit but it can be productive. Once the shooting starts, the elk hide. Weather should be mild with no snow. If there is snow the elk will leave for lower country at once, I have actually seen them leave in a heavy snow, it quit snowing but they were gone. You can hunt unit 80 too, is that right? Later, I can send you a pm.
