Hello all, new to the forum but a long time looker of the site. I will be hunting the second rifle season of Elk the year with a unlimited over the counter tag. Our camp will be in the Platoro, Co area at 9900 ft. The group I am with has hunted that unit before but at lower elevations. This will be my first Elk hunt. I usally hunt mule or whitetail. I have seen people hunt Elk by waiting them out on a ridge over a valley....I like to spot and stalk, what are some suggestions? Anybody ever hunt in this area? do we need to go higher or lower in elevation? How is the bear hunting in the area? There are a few OTC tags left and one of the guys I am with is interested. Any tips would be great and appreciated.
