Overview of GMU 71 Hunting Facts
Located among Dolores and Montezuma counties in southwest Colorado, Unit 71 continues to draw hunters every year with its above-average success rates for mule deer and elk hunting. Aside from its success rates, Unit 71 consists of 283,000 (85%) public land, allowing much more ground for hunters to disperse. The hunting pressure tends to be high, due to the unlimited number of OTC bull tags available for 2nd & 3rd rifle seasons. However, the terrain offers several variances of skill level, providing some harder to reach areas that are suitable for getting away from the crowds.
