That would be awesome! I'm very familiar with the area because we've had a cabin in Red Feather for ten years. I'm just not sure where to look for the elk at.

I do...........

Try concentrating around Dead Man. Other places that you might want to consider would be Green Ridge. If you have any snow by the thrid season and it affects the elk, look lower.

Thats what i've been told so far and the weather will probably be a big factor.
