Still waiting to hear that in the woods for the first time.  One of these days I'll make it out during the rut.

One of my buddies who is

One of my buddies who is still working up at the park said that one of the biggest bulls, who I watched his antlers grow all summer, just broke off his right main beam just past his third point fighting with a 5X5.

Basalt mountain and red tables and 4 mile

have been jumping around 4mile and the red tables. lots of grass and temps got down into the mid 30s last night in the red tables. Saw a real nice buck young but nice spread. No elk any where! no bugles no cows calling no tracks no nothing. I covered alot of ground from 9000 to 10500ish. Saw alot of turkey on Basalt mountain. Heading higher next weekend and i hope we get some colder temps soon.  Goat farmer near glenwood

I was out all weekend! We got

I was out all weekend! We got one bull fired up, but we started the bugling. There was some faint bugles in the distance. We did kill one bull this weekend, but nothing is talking much on their own!

I was up that way last year

I was up that way last year and didn't have a lot of luck.  Seemed like there were not that many elk or fresh sign on red table.  We did see a lot more sign in between Red table and Basalt Mountain.  Those drainages looked a lot better.

basalt mountain and red tables

funny man my name is Aaron also, cool i live in gw and have hunted basalt for a few years. its a good mountain and you are right the drainages in the redtables do look good but they are way deep and u really can get lost down in there. it gets thick. red tables would probably make a good late season spot. I went far down into mile 10 of the "redtable road" and no elk sighn nice buck living down in there he really owns that spot. Gonna get on the road this weekend and hit it hard might do durango or silverton any ideas?

I've got a wildlife habitat

I've got a wildlife habitat field trip up to RMNP tomorrow. I'm sure they are going to be full bore up there! I'm pretty excited.
