First I wouldn't draw for any unit unless you have done your homework. For Unit 61 if you feel your going to draw for that unit which season is it you are trying to draw for. Second are you doing this for what specific elk season, early rifle archery etc? Do you know anything about this unit? goto the Colorado Depatment of wildlife website check the statistics for the specific area and Hunting season dates. You may find some other areas you like better statistically that is. http://wildlife.state.co.us/NR/rdonl...ElkHarvest.pdf
check the statistics for this area. Primarily hunting is hunting just make sure you use your 14 perference points wisely. You may want do a scouting trip or hire a decent guide. Best of Luck. When I used my 14 perference points back in 2004 I went on a Wildlife ranch hunt and saw plenty of good quality bulls. I'm currently sitting on 7 for pronghorn and 6 for deer and 2 for Elk. Just keep the rotation going is my MOTTO.
