Hey fellow hunters,
We need a little assistance.
Our hunting party of 4 consist of a small group of wastewater plant operators and construction workers. Three of our party are Volunteer Hunter Education Instructors. We always seem short on the major "coin" it takes to travel across country purchase lic. and hire a guide.
Due to our very limited budget we have never been able to hire a guide or been horse packed into an area. I have hunted the public lands around the Alamosa/LaJara Reservoir area of Colorado 3 times over the past 10 years with very limited sucess. The area is heavily hunted and ATV's everywhere in the mountains.
I am interested in a 2003 season hunt and searching for any pointers on good access to Public Land for elk hunting. Our small hunting party does not own ATV's but we do have 4 wheel drive trucks. We wouldn't mind finding a good area that we could be taken in on horse back if the cost of the horses are reasonable.
Thought I would start early and maybe find a unit where there are good elk populations and past experiences from other hunters in the units.
If anyone has or knows of areas or if you know of anyone that would pack a small group into an area and bring out game, please let me know.
Feel free to email me direct if you don't want the whole world to know. Email at firstname.lastname@example.org Due to scheduling we will need to look at the first or second rifle seasons.
We would appreciate any assistance.
