Well, after the 5 day season I was unable to harvest an elk. We seen a few and came close but a shot was never presented.
Sleeping in tents at 10,000ft was doable but I may think twice about it next year. The 1st night was down into the high 20s and was chilly sleeping. It makes it hard to get up out of that bag in the morning.
Monday morning we woke up to a thunder and lightning storm which dumped 2" of snow on us. Firewood was all wet and ran out of propane. We managed to hunt 3/4 of the day and headed back to Denver to shower and regroup. Yesterday we were walking into our spot by 5:30am when we stopped by a screaming bull less than 100yards. We sat till sunrise and never seen or heard from him again.
Overall it was a great hunt with tons of laughs and meeting of a few new hunters. We managed to find a new"Honeyhole" in the process. Not too bad for our 1st time hunting elk in CO.
