    Looking at trying a different part of the Unit this year. Anyone hunt north of Greenhorn, south of Desolation lookout, south west ish of Olive lake?

    I don't have ATVs or Horses. So it will be a hike-n-hunt, but I'd like to see animals even if I can't draw horns on 'em.

    Oh...if you have any recommendations for geeser hunts...my father-in-law probably shouldn't be doing anything difficult.

    I have hunted that area one time. On our way back I came over the wrong ridge and ended up taking a 8 mile detour back to Olive lake. If you ever walk around the lake and find a bottle of whiskey stashed next to a stump, you're welcome. I hid that over 12 years ago before the fire went through there. I havent been back.

    Jlong55; If you look at the top of this Thread you will see it's from 2010 so not very current.

    Old thread, but I will say, good country for Geezers.
    Not full of deep canyons.
    The one elk I killed in there, we drove to within 15 feet of it.
    A little chainsaw action, but we got real close.
