I have hunted unit 36 extensively, I hunted from the Vail side and have been to the tops of most peaks in the Gore range, Great hunting. I have my sheep, goat, several deer and a couple of elk from there. It is tough hunting but there are places where the deer like to hang out untill the snow falls. Most of the hunters are in the timber and few venture into Eagles Nest Wilderness area without some sort of pack animal. I would stay away from the Piney lake drainage as good access make it a popular area.
