Overview of GMU 45 Hunting Facts
Located in Eagle and Pitkin counties, unit 45 offers an expanse of public land for hunters to permeate and make use of. To be more specific, the unit is 90% made up of public land or approximately 195,000 acres. With White River National Forest in the northeast territory and Holy Cross Wilderness Area in the western territory, unit 45 provides a flawless setting for hunting big game. The Forest Service Office in Minturn is an available resource for hunting information for Colorado Unit 45. The inclusion of OTC elk (bull) tags for 2nd and 3rd rifle seasons embraces a larger hunting crowd. However, being that this unit has such a large amount of public land, there is more room for which hunters can space out.
