I'm trying to figure how to best spend my 13 non-resident elk points in Colorado. So my questions are:
1. Continue to save them or spend them now before the point creep begins to reduce my options?
2. If I spend them now, what is the best hunt for 13 non-resident Elk points? I'm looking for a shot at a nice bull (330+). I really enjoy the bugle hunts, so archery or muzzle loader would be my first choice. I would consider going guided but do not want to blow my life savings to do it. I'm 43 years old, in good physical condition and not afraid to hunt hard for 5 to 7 days straight. I would love to get into unit 61 but I don't think I will ever be able to catch the points. The units I'm considering now include: 40 , 66 and 76.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
