Re: CO 2nd Rifle Season in GMU 521 (Raggeds Wilderness Area) Looking for INFO

So it's been a year and a half since my elk hunt in GMU 521. I was lucky enough to draw a mule deer tag for the same unit. We saw some cows but no bulls.

I did see three trophy muleys about 600 yards away up the mountain not far from Gold Basin. I did not have a shot as they were too far for me and a full value wind. I was hunting around 12,000 feet just above the tree line.

However, I am planning my second elk hunting trip to the same area this coming October (19-27). If anyone has any info for the Gold Basin and Silver Basin area, please let me know. I learned a tremendous amount on my first hunt in 2011 and I am ready to learn even more and hopefully bring home some meat.
