Been lurking on here for a while and thought I woudl post up. I recently moved to Colorado and woudl like to take advantage of the big game opportunities out here. I've been a fanatical bird hunter for 30 years but have never tried big game. I
I'm going to put in for a cow tag for GMU 4 and 5 up by Steamboat. I've been studying the DOW's Elk Hunting University online info and the harvest stats. Those units seem like a good bet. I'm just looking for a meat hunt and thought by putting in for a cow in the ML season I'd have a good chance.
I want to start scouting now (as least as long as the snow is light) but am hoping to get some input from those who have hunted that area or any other suggestions. If anyone wants company on their hunt and would be willing to teach a newb a few lessons in hunting big game I'd welcome the opportunity. Thanks and good hunting!
