Gunnison is an old ranch town that promotes itself as a sporting destination. In the summer the town is busy with vacationers and many temporary residents from Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and California. The area offers cooler climates in the summer for these folks and a quiet mountain living feel. This population, plus the college students that attend Western Stae Colorado University support the large number of local bars, restaurants, food and service businesses. In the fall the town is much quieter and the hunters take up vacancy and take advantage of the great National forest and BLM access' in and around Gunnison. There are many trophy hunting units in the Gunnison River Basin and this attracts sportsman from all over the US.
