Well, my first scouting mission didn't go so well. An 8 mile backpack trip with not one sign of elk. Of course I stayed on the trail and I understand I will have to get off the beaten path, but everywhere I looked it was thick brush. I have a few more areas to check out before the season starts. Does anyone have a good starting point for Units 371, 28, CO? I went in through Rock Creek Trail(which is overpacked with hunters during archery).
