    I am considering booking a DIY drop camp hunt in Unit 54 near Gunnison Colorado. Anybody ever hunt this unit before? Any tips or advice.

    a large part of the area is wilderness so your on foot either your own or horseback and it's fairly high in elevation but that is relative to were your used to. if your coming from sea level it will take several days to acclimate yourself to the thin air.
