Me and my brothers have been wanting to go to CO on an elk hunt. We drew for a tag and didn't get one. Then someone told me that you didn't have to draw for a tag. Is there any truth to this? If ya would let me know what we need to do. thanks
Might want to ask your question under Elk or Rocky Mountains.
About the elk tags, it all depends on what unit you want to hunt. There are many that are over the counter. They even have left over cow tags that you can just buy over the counter. The northwest Colorado area is way over populated with elk, so the DOW is anxious to get the numbers down quickly.
Are you looking to still come this year? Third season starts this Saturday and there is a late cow season too.
Thanks for the help cowgal. I guess it makes more sense to ask in the CO or Elk section. Guess ya gotta help the newbie's out. I doubt we will be able to make it up there this year. But best of luck to you
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
