    1st season in the flat tops go high, If you are going to hunt from the trailhead plan on a 3hour or so ride every morning and evening depending on the trailhead...If your interested in doing a drop camp with an outfitter drop me a PM I have hunted with several in the flat tops..

    Who have you hunted with? I think we are going with Ripple Creek. I have talked to several previous clients and they were all very happy with their hunts with them. They all sid they have booked again with them and some have been going for several years with them.

    I would not use any outiftter for unit 24. It is almost all public land. Kip and his crew are not known to be the best either. I have found numerous posts that do not recommend him, used him myself at one point due to a friends recommendation, and once they dropped us off we did not see anyone again. 5 miles in, and no way to get the meat or our stuff out. If I really wanted to pack my own stuff in and out , I would have carried it myself. Plus they book soo many people in the same place. What elk or deer, they had all moved down to the private land to hide.

    good luck and keep doing more research

    Re: GMU 24 Colorado

    I know this thread is old but hopefully I can get some more out of it. Been looking at unit 24 hard to do a backpack hunt off the trailhead a ways for 2nd rifle season this fall and have been using google earth a lot too scout the land.

    Seems like a lot of public forest service land and hopefully not much for an atv area, don't wanna be hunting with people running around on atvs and wanna get off the well beating path some to hopefully work hard for some success.

    Anyone have any advice for a first timer? Looking to load up the Eberlestock's at the trail head and head out a ways for a couple days and set up tents and camp out there a ways to get in the back country.

    Any tips on gear, clothing, strategy, food ect would be great

    Thanks, Brett
