Colorado Unit 48 Description
Unit 48 Located in Lake and Chaffee Counties bounded on the North by the Continental Divide; on the East by Tennessee Creek and Arkansas River; on the South by Clear Creek and South Fork of Clear Creek; on the West by the Continental Divide.
GMU 48 Elevation: From 14,433-foot Mt. Elbert to 9,023 feet near Clear Creek Reservoir. Broad valley bottoms changing rapidly to steep, rough mountains. Grass & hay meadows to aspens & ponderosa to spruce & fir to alpine tundra. Weather: Extremely variable; first freeze or snow may occur in early September.Approximately 80 percent public land. Hunting sccess is good with public roads and trails providing access to public lands. Deer: Some large bucks found in the alpine areas early in the seasons; otherwise concentrate in low elevations in the southern part of the unit. This GMU is not the best deer unit because of the high elevation. Elk: The southern 30 percent of unit usually holds more elk than rest of unit. Twin Peaks and Lake Creek are a good place to drive through on Hwy. 82 scanning for elk. Keep in mind this is very high country with elevations not going far below 9,000 feet. This is a good area for early season hunts and there are many high points you can scan from.
