Colorado Unit 78 Description
Unit 78 San Juan Basin Region: Conejos, Rio Grande, Archuleta and Mineral Counties bounded on the North and on the East by Continental Divide; on the South by the New Mexico State Line; on the West by San Juan River, Four Mile Creek and Piedra River-San Juan River divide.
Public land and road access is good at mid to high elevations in these units which lie between Durango and Wolf Creek Pass. Elevations range from about 6,500 feet to more than 12,000 feet. Weather can change quickly and be severe. If the weather is warm, animals will be scattered widely in the vast alpine terrain. Hunters should concentrate their efforts away from roads. Two wilderness areas – the Weminuche on the north, and the South San Juan in the southeast corner – offer good back-country hunting opportunities. South of U.S. Highway 160 much of the land is privately owned or part of the Southern Ute Indian Reservation. Hunting is not allowed on tribal lands.
