Colorado Unit 49 Description
Unit 49 Located in Lake, Chaffee and Park Counties bounded on the North by the Continental Divide; on the East by Colorado 9 and U.S. 285; on the South by U.S. 24; on the West by Arkansas River and Tennessee Creek.
GMU 49 Elevation: From 14,238-foot Mt. Cameron to 7,874 near Johnson Village. Terrain: Broad valley bottoms up to moderately steep hills, climbing to steep mountains. Vegetation: Piñons & junipers, aspens & pine, spruce & fir, alpine with grassy meadows. Weather: Extremely variable; first freeze or snow may be in early September.
Land Status: Approximately 80 percent public. Hunter Access: Good. Many public roads and trails to and through public lands. No motorized vehicles allowed in the Wilderness portion. Deer: Better areas are in the piñons and junipers in the Chaffee County portion of the unit. Paddock State Wildlife Area provides good hunting in later seasons. Weston Pass is a good access road to public National Forest Land. Elk: Most are on the Fairplay side of the mountain range. Herds are increasing near Leadville. Weston Pass is a good area to hunt because it is in between summer and wintering grounds. The national forest area around Leadville is worth checking out as well.
