A friend and I are looking at doing our first elk hunt together next year. Since it is our first time we are going to go with a rifle to help increase our chances. We have decided on Colorado but looking at the big game guide we are having trouble even figuring out where to start at picking a unit. Being completely new to this I would appreciate any and all advice you can give me on elk hunting. I understand if you don't want to give me specific units but if you could give me some ideas on where to start that would be great. Also, any tips and pointers on hunting elk would also be appreciated.
Thanks for any and all comments and or suggestions.
