if the plans come together i'll be hunting private property around telluride colorado during the 2nd rifle season this year.
it's only taken a couple of years of working a side job to save up enough for the trip.
i'm stoked,when this weather cracks i'm gonna start shooting the new rifle and get into a little better shape for the hunt.
just can't wait to get into that country
Boy i wish i could but ibelieve i would have to go Caribou hunting in the artic first before elk then elk hunt,But wallet keeps me from enjoying this at the present time but will someday.
To all of you that get to go and hunt some elk this year:Good luck and have fun
Do you think another thread of elk tips and strategies is in order. I am also applying for my first trip. I want to say that my party is going around the south central area. I found a pretty good site http://www.jacksonholewyoming.net/elk/index.html
I currently inherited a Model 70 Winchester .375 H&H that I would love to use. It is a bit big, but I don't think that bull elk will go very far!! I may get an T/C Encore with a .300 Win Mag and take also.
I would love to start gathering some tips and such to prepare.
we will be camped at about 10,501 ft.yup i will be shaping up in those athens county hills,walking 10+ miles at a fast step...last time it took about a day to get accimated to the thinner air...gotta be prepared for all situations in the mountains
