Overview of GMU 31 Hunting Facts
Located east of Unit 30 on the western side of Colorado, bounded by the Colorado River on the southern boundary line, sits Unit 31. Located in Garfield & Mesa counties, Unit 31 has a large expanse of private ranches that may impede public access points. However, the unit still contains 260,769 acres of public land which comprises approximately 58% of the total unit land area. Unforeseen events such as the Pine Gulch Fire in 2020 have resulted in thousands of acres of charred land. However, this will spark fresh new growth and will be an advantage in the future. The entire unit did not burn so there are some areas that were unaffected by the fire. There is significant evidence that big game is very resilient to environmental changes such as wildfires and their aftermath.
