I was there early, for the first 5 days. From talking to the biologist at a check station I found that this area is wintering grounds for deer from the Colorado high country. Also most is heavily timbered in the National Forest and the more open Aspen-Sage slopes are inaccesible behind private ground. The ones on public property are pretty hard hunted. Not the highest population of deer I have seen. Do some checking and look at some of the local outfitters.
