Hunting Gear / Re: Tents?
« Last post by Boom on February 21, 2020, 12:11:46 PM »
Has anyone tried a CVT or Roof top tent?


I personally don't like the roof top tents. They're extremely expensive for what they are.

If you have a truck you can likely find a slide in camper for the same price or a similar price and it will do a much better job. If you have an SUV build a platform for the trunk and sleep inside, it'll be warmer and cheaper in the long run.

i didnt like them either.  but if you see how fast they set up, it makes a GREAT argument.  i HATE putting up a tent in the rain.   plus they are all lined on the floor with a mattress.  i wouldnt ever want one on top of my truck, but if i had one of those Adventure Compact trailers, it would be awesome.

Thanks for the responses. I had the impression that pressure/access was an issue in those units and this confirms some of that.


Any insight into units 55 or 54 from an access/pressure standpoint?


In my research i've noticed a lot of public lands in those units and it looks to be fairly roadless in parts as well.

Depending on what unit(s) you hunt, the Regs show one hunt code for 71, 72, 73, 711.


One hunt code for 74, 741


One hunt code for 75, 751


One hunt code for 77, 78, 771


So you arent restricted to just one GMU


Unfortunately my #1 spot is in 70, which stands alone...sigh.  :(

Straight up honest here for ya.


Those units just west of FoCo are tough archery elk hunting.
I have a good resident buddy that hunts them every year and he gets into elk but there are so many people and recreators that time of year it makes it tough.


When you look at elky spots on the map, so is everyone else.


Sure there are some good elk in them, but I drive right through those units and keep going when I go elk hunting.

I will be hunting during archery season. I'm also looking at unit 55 and 54 as they seem to have a lot more public land. I haven't dug in and researched those  yet though.

What season are you looking at going? You are correct that Unit 9 is basically all private. I don't have much experience with 19 or 191, but I have hunted Unit 8 quite a few years ago during rifle seasons. For a draw unit it definitely felt crowded back then.

Looking into this draw unit for our 2020 elk season. I've only been able to get some basic information out of the CO hunt planners that i've talked to but i've requested some names for the Biologists in those areas so hopefully that will happen.


I'm wondering if anyone has ever hunted these units. I'm specifically wondering about access on units 19, 9 and 191. I know Rocky Mountain National Park takes up part of the south end of 19 and it looks to be quite a bit of private in 9 and 19. Anyone have any experience in these units?


Also, looking for overall thoughts, is it worth trying to draw this tag or is it better to just do over the counter and have access to all those units instead of being limited to just these units? I know the appeal would be having a limited amount of hunters but i'm a little hesitant to go this direction.


Thanks all and best of luck on your planning!
