Colorado Unit 17 Description
Unit 17 Located in Jackson County bounded on the North and East by Colorado 125; on the South by the Continental Divide (Jackson-Grand Co. line); on the West and North by Colorado 14.
GMU 17 North Park borders Wyoming between the Continental Divide and Medicine Bow Mountains. The valley floor at 7,880’ supports agricultural lands and sage. Extensive willow stands line the streams – a favorite moose habitat, so be sure of your target. The forest surrounding the basin varies from aspen/lodgepole to spruce/fir. The area is generally windy and colder than places in western Colorado. Prepare for snow during your hunt. 4WD is helpful, as are chains. Over 2/3 of North Park is public land. Patient hunters could have success hunting trophy bucks. North Park has an early rifle, deer-only season that begins as soon as possible after archery closes. This season provides additional hunter opportunities as many of the deer in North Park migrate early. Few deer are found in North Park during January classification flights. Small sample sizes lead to higher observed buck:doe ratios than can be expected during the hunting seasons. Elk are distributed evenly throughout the unit. During the day, the bulls will be in dark timber – glass in the early morning and evening. The herd tends to stay in the coniferous timbered areas until late in the season, moving to lower elevations with snow and hunting pressure.
