    Several years ago I pulled a cow elk out of the southern half of Medicine Bow NF.
    This would be the western slope of that range and in Colorado area #006.

    The good advice given to me was: " This elk herd will visit this area several times a year, in a good year. If you can't find any, be patient. Maybe they will be back before your hunt ends. "

    And they were. They came in one night and the next morning you could trip over them. Got my cow for the freezer and went home happy.

    Best of luck to you.

    Just ride around on your 4wheeler until you stumble across one. This seems to be what everyone else does.
