For years I have elk hunted around Gunnison. This year am trying something new. I know it's a long shot, but does anyone have any advice on 481? We are DIY backpack hunters. Will try to get several miles into the Collegiate Peaks Wilderness area and stay for 6 days I think, but I'm open to suggestions.

We Hunted around Mancos the first  3 times and did a Bow Hunt south of Alamosa along the New Mexico border.. Gunnison altho  beautiful is rugged country... good luck and we LOVE Pictures.

Thank you. I will give it a try. And I will do my best with pictures. Gunnison is really tough going. I don't mind rugged, but the elk population has been down. We had some preference points and decided to blow them. It's about impossible to accumulate enough for a serious trophy unit, so we decided we will save two or three at a time and then spend them.
