So, I am almost set to venture out for my elk hunt next Friday the 3rd! FINALLY! I am not hunting my normal digs, I am hunting on the Big Gulch Ranches around Craig. What I am looking for is a place to camp that is near town or the ranches, and is also free! As many of you are aware, I was recently out of work for just over a year and barely "catching-up" financially, so I am planning on using the wall tent and roughing it mid winter in northwest Colorado. Even the pay campgrounds are likely out of my league.
From what I gather on the process, I have to check-in each day in town, and then also check back in at the end of the day. Where I normally camp is too far north (~40miles) and any other places that I am familiar with I am sure are snowed in deep by now.
So I am now desperate for help! I need something close by so I am not spending a fortune on gas getting back and forth each day.
Thanks in advance for your assistance, it is most appreciated!
