Well, I may have another dilemma. I have another buddy that might be able to get me access to a private ranch near Cedaredge. What zone would encompass that area? I am having trouble on the map figuring it out. It looks to be on the border of 421 (No OTC) and 52.
So, depending ont he area, how is the elk and deer herds there? Also, in your opinion, would I be better to so a combo archery hunt or wait till rifle, if I can draw the tag. On the note of the tags, even though there are no OTC tags for elk in 421, can you still buy archery elk there, or is that limited too?
Both options have their plusses and minuses. Need to be way, way closer for archery, but, it may be easier to do if the bulls are in rut. However, I have never shot an animal with a bow yet.
Ugh, and I thought the hunt itself will be the hard part, but it seem the decisions prior are killing me...
