I am in process for applying for CO elk tag. I would love to hear some recommendations as to.. -tactics -gear -tips as I have never been elk hunting. I have inherited a safari grade Model 70 Winchester .375 mag, but may purchase an Encore and get a .300 Win Mag barrel. I am applying to Gunyson in CO and have access to land and a private guide. Our group may go with bow, but I would rather go with rifle. I feel that a rifle will give me a better chance for success for a first trip. Any thoughts?
