Big score! I just drew my first colorado elk license for Unit 56 in the Nov.5 -13 season. Any advice from all you veterans out there on Unit 56, or just hunting late season bull elk in general? I appreciate all the help!
3rd season is traditionally one of the toughest seasons to elk hunt. Thats a good unit, but it's big country with several 14ers. You can actually use that to your advantage somewhat, as the the elk shouldn't be too high in the drainages during 3rd season, making them a little easier to get to. And pray for snow, but not too much.
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
