Hope your not staying in Leadville and hunting 47? You have better access down 82 pass Aspen then heading in or going into Basalt then going in along Frying Pan Rd reason for that just very small section of unit 47 that backs up to 48 is not part of the Hunter Fryingpan Wilderness. Lot of the back roads Forest Service shut them down Sept 1.
Couple times I drew early buck Sept in unit 444,45 and 44 within the Holy Cross Wilderness and 444 is one of the boundaries of 47 and one of the boundaries unit 48 is unit 45. Last time I was in there had a packer take me in and I had bull elk in camp every day and there was just me up there.
Since I'm now 71 and I'm not packing as much I use the Badland 2800. I know nothing of ATV as I like to hunt back county only thing going in there is either by foot or horseback and I prefer walking in.
Unit 47 you can buy bull elk tag over the counter and cow is draw and your going to have lot more hunters in that unit has fair amount of private land since there is Aug 15 thru Jan 15 private land cow tags. You also have private land either sex tag for unit 44,45,444 and 47 first elk season and you have same tag for public land.
Wish you luck
