Overview of GMU 62 Hunting Facts
Game Management Unit 62 has been and remains to be one of the highest ranking units in Colorado. The elements that drive its success include its proximity to the Uncompahgre Plateau, the healthy concentration of elk and mule deer numbers, and the favorable weather patterns that allow these herds to be present at every altitude of this flat-top mountain range. In addition to these positive attributes, Unit 62 gains traction from hunters because its tags are more attainable than other units. This unit contains segments of Montrose, Ouray, Delta and Mesa counties. The north border in Mesa County is met by US-50 and Hwy 141. US-50 and US-550 comprise the eastern side of the unit in Delta County. The southern portion of GMU 62 in Ouray County contains US-550 along with Hwy 62. Unit 62 and Unit 61 share a border on the western side of Unit 62. They are divided by a graveled road appropriately known as the Divide Road but formally known as US Forest Road 402. As a result of this heavily hunted unit, large bucks and bulls may be tougher to find since the likelihood of them maturing is diminished. However, don’t let that deter you.
