Colorado Unit 44 Description
Unit 44 Located in Garfield, Pitkin, Eagle and Gunnison Counties bounded on the North by the Colorado River; on the East by the Roaring Fork River and Castle Creek; on the South by divide between Roaring Fork-Crystal River drainages, East River-Muddy Creek drainages and McClure Pass; on the West by Muddy Creek-Crystal River divide, divide between Roaring Fork-Crystal River drainages and Divide Creek-Baldy Creek drainages and South Canyon Creek.
GMU 44 These units are bordered by the Colorado River, the Gore Range, the Red Table Mountains and the Continental Divide. Elevation climbs from 6,000’ with sage and pinyon to over 14,000’ with alpine vegetation starting at 10,500’. Weather varies widely with heavy high country snow. Motorized travel restricted to designated routes.
Unit 44 has plenty of public access, however the northern part of GMU 44 between Edwards and Eagle is primarily private property with no hunting allowed. Deer herds are scattered from 6,500’ to timberline, moving down to the lower elevation pinyon-juniper areas as heavy snow arrives. Over 18” of snow will move the deer. Hunt the aspen, open parks and shrublands. GMU 44 is managed for trophy deer, with limited number of licenses available. Elk are scattered from about 7,000’ to above timberline. As hunting pressure increases, they seek the deeper canyons and dark timber areas way from roads. Concentrating on the large stands of dark timber and the larger wilderness areas will increase your chance of finding a big bull on public land
