I am for looking for Colorado guides to hunt cow elk. Any recommendations from personal experience deeply appreciated. Last guide I had had fancysite web, but there idea of guiding was driving up and down logging roads...pitiful.
Are you a resident or a non resident? For a general cow hunt with a guide if you are a non resident check the Parks and Wildlife web page and do a search on Ranching For Wildlife and check out the outfitters that are listed there.
I have to agree here. If you do your homework on where you want to hunt and include the needed scouting in advance then your ability to harvest an elk increases dramatically to equal that of using a guide. If you have a good deal of money and just want somebody to point and say shoot then follow Critter's advice and look on the Colorado Parks and Wildlife website for reputable guide services.
I have a system I use in Whitetail hunting during the rut that seems to work for me. When I make a mock scrape in the area I wish to hunt I will place a couple of 35mm
film canisters (film removed of course) in the scrape after I have cleared out all leaves and other debris. The film canisters are filled with cotton balls and saturated with doe in heat urine. This keeps the urine from soaking in the ground and can be refreshed on each trip if needed. I will also use the tarsal gland of the buck...
