Been several years since I hunted in Colorado. No intentions of hunting there anymore, but I was just wondering how the hunting was in a couple of spots. Used to be real good. Just remenescing. Anyway I was just wondering about the 7 hermets country if the mule deer were still huge, the canayhois river drainage if the elk herd was still good, and if the elk have come back into where that mine is north west of silverthorne. That used to be real good elk hunting early and moose had a good start there. The last year I hunted around that mine some rifle hunter or hunters came in and killed most of the moose. I don't even remember the name of the place now. Every moring for a couple of years we would walk rite past a little bull with a couple of cows. My uncle evenhad them named. Then the following year we found carcasses with the heads chopped off. Asked the game warden about it and he said someone had poached them the year before, and the investigation was ongoing. The few jerks out there give us all a bad name. Too bad those guys don't get caught more often. It's no different here in Montana. poachers make me furious. Anyway I'll get off my box now. i sure had a lot of fun in those spots.
