Overview of GMU 58 Hunting Facts
Located in the heart of Colorado in Park and Fremont counties is Game Management Unit 58. Its inclusion in the Buffalo Peaks Wilderness Area, Pike National Forest, and San Isabel National Forest represent its natural beauty and untouched wilderness. It may also explain why half of the unit is privately owned, driving the fact home that hunters need to be prepared with a GPS unit to locate the public 287,000 acres this unit has to offer. The majority of private land is concentrated mostly in the northern portion of the unit. Unit 58 is home to the Cripple Creek Deer Herd (approximately 13,000 in population), the Buffalo Peaks Elk Herd (approximately 4,000 in population), and the South Park Antelope Herd (approximately 700 in population). These healthy numbers should provide some insight into the chance for a successful hunt in Colorado Unit 58!
