    Found a thread that might be an eye opener for Unit 54 in the West Elk Wilderness. It is pretty disappointing for hunting results. Sure some folks score but on a general consensus... it is crowded, even in the Wilderness area. Please read through the thread and form your own opinon. http://forums.bowsite.com/tf/bgforums/thread.cfm?forum=5&threadid=393825#3927511 Now... a lot of the fellows were archery hunting, but many also rifle hunted the area in the past. Perhaps Units 53, 63, and 521 are not so crowded, but I imagine they have lots of hunters also. Respectfullly submitted. HH Richard PS scroll up to the beginning of the thread.

    http://www.summitpost.org/flat-tops/images/p-182948/p1 From summitpost.org/ Photos There are 3 pages of photos from the Flat Tops Wilderness area 73 total I believe I am offering as on Pg 1 Charlie had suggested perhaps a hunt in the Flat Tops White River National Forest might intrigue some folks. Well... here are photos from the area for your viewing. Anyone have any experience hunting here ? At one time... this location held the largest elk herd in Colorado, now I believe it is perhaps 2nd or 3rd largest elk herd. With heavy snows the elk migrate out of the high area into lower elevations. If you know the migration routes when that happens, heavy snowfall, you can see hundreds of elk. Click the photos in the gallery to see them larger with some explanation of the area. This area usually has a large population of hunters, but many elk also. HH Richard
