DIY elk hunt

Ok this is my first post so id like to say hello to everyone. Now on to picking all your brains for info!

Im planning a trip for this year to go to colorado. I think the place we are going to go is near rifle, co. That could change. What i was wondering is where do you guys stay when you go? Im talking public land hunts and not guided. Do you just stay in a tent or rv or what?? I didnt know if guys rented cabins or not. Any help would be appreciated!

You can camp in a tent or an RV on the National Forest. Or you can stay in a motel and drive back and forth each day. I am along way from Rifle but there are cabins that you can rent in my part of Colorado so I am sure that there are cabins available to rent around Rifle.

We usually camp in a tent on public land. Sometimes one of the guys will bring up a tent trailer or two and we'll also have a big tent for sleeping or storage.

That's what we do too. we pitch a tent on the national forest land usually at the trailhead. Then we hike into our hunting area in the morning

tent or pop-up

We hunted out of a pop-up camper for a dozen years and just bought a wall tent last year. We set up on public Forest Service land. Works out great.
