Going on my first elk hunt this fall. I have a tag for 1st rifle unit 65 colorado. Spent a ton of hours with onx and on google earth and the little bit of info i can find on the unit sounds like its pretty nasty steep. I was just wondering from other peoples experiences is there terrain that is too steep for elk? I want to try and find some crazy nasty stuff so i can get away from other hunters but i dont wanna kill myself going into stuff that is so steep even elk will avoid it. I Have like 100 waypoints marked on my onx that look interesting to me (food, water, benches, etc...) and i need to narrow it down a little bit. My onx map is starting to look like a bowl of fruity pebbles.
