Colorado Elk Hunting

Anyone around the MO/KS area care to join me on a elk hunt in unit 55 near Gunnison CO? It's my first time going, i'm a Kansas City fireman. My wife is scared crapless of me going by myself and everyone I talk to says, "Yea Yea, I'll go for sure", then when it comes time to pony up it's game over. All as I ask is for a little help with gas. I'm taking my new 2012 Yamaha Grizzly 550 4x4. I have the truck and trailer. All as you would need is a four wheeler, probably want it fuel injected unless you want to have it rejetted, a tent and camping stuff. Food we can figure out. And a tag if you wana hunt. I'm going the second rifle season, but I can't leave untill I finish my captains exam for the fire dept on the 20th. From what I read and talked to people about, not being there opening day isn't such a bad thing. Crowds are crazy.

Kansasity - Elk hunt Second Rifle Season - Unit 55

Kansasity,

I have drawn a mule deer second season tag for unit 55, and will pick up an over the counter elk tag as well.  I am driving by myself from Indianapolis - solo as well.  I am somewhat of a hard core hunter, but I may be able to help you some when you get out there.  Let me know if your interested - if you haven't found someone to ride with you.  I have really been looking forward to the hunt!

I haven't found anyone to go.

I haven't found anyone to go. I've decided to take my popup camper and stay in it. I didn't get a muley tag, but it was my first time putting in for it. Where abouts are you planning on camping? Are you taking a atv? You can just shoot me a pm if you like. Talk to you later, Mike.

Your Wife should be worried, the Rocky Mountains is no place for a Greenhorn Rookie to be hunting alone. jmo
that is how people end up dead.
I hope you find a partner.

First of all

First of all I'm not a greenhorn rookie. I've been hunting my whole life, and usually go to hike in Colorado every year with my wife, I've just never done it with a rifle in my hand legaly able to shoot a elk.

Where do you plan on parking

Where do you plan on parking your camper? I am hunting 55 as well but my current plan is to set up a tent campsite closer to my planned hunting area near the center of the gmu. Send me a PM and maybe we could see if a plan can be made.
