    CO Unit 38

    I applied for the draw in Unit 38 to get on a private ranch. The ranch is a draw as well so I might get stuck hunting the entire unit to find elk. Does anyone have experience in this unit and that could be willing to share their experience?

    Hi UH,

    I moved out to Colorado 2 years ago from MI. The hunting out here is different than whitetail out on private property in the Midwest. I am trying to learn more of the ropes in the west with hunting in certain units while applying and building points in other units and states. I typically hunt rifle or shotgun depending on the season but just started getting into archery as well since tags are more likely to happen with a more primitive weapon. I live out in Castle Rock and I am trying to learn more about units somewhat close to the house so that I can actually scout more often. It's a pleasure joining everyone on here.

    Thanks again!

    Unit 38 is a low success unit for both deer and elk. If you looked at the units a little further south then I think you would be much happier with your hunt.

    I used to live near unit 38 and hunted that area a decent amount. It is extremely tough if you don't have access to private land. If you decide to hunt it for elk I can point you in the right direction but it is pretty crowded being so close to Denver and so easy to draw.
    A bad day in the woods is better than a good day at work.

    I will mostly likely hunt the green ranch this year if I draw a permit for it which should be better for access and success rate for elk. I wanted to go and hunt deer there in archery by picking up an OTC tag. I have seen some nice mulies there but I want to get a bit away from some of the parks. Do you know of any good areas with easier car access that might be good? I don't mind packing in for a long hike to get into a nice spot. Thanks for your help. Send me a PM if you know of any specifics.
