Help me find deer in CO GMU 47

Last week I backpacked into the Midway Pass drainage and spent 4 days moving around, glassing multiple bowls and didn't turn up a single deer nor any deer sign. I did see some elk and lots of elk sign.

There was not as much willows at the top of the drainages as I had hoped to hold deer. Is this true in most of the drainages in 47?

Was I simply in the wrong drainage for deer? Are there others that would be better?

Or are the deer not living above timberline much in 47 and I need to look in the timber?

I'll be rifle hunting in Sept.

If you would prefer to keep your advice quiet, feel free to shoot me an email or give me a call.
