Just came back from a solid week of archery hunting the the back country in Colorado. I am wondering just how bad last winter was on the elk herd in this area. I have always found elk here and this year with all the miles of looking, glassing, setting at water holes I saw ZERO. I did find an area where there were three sets of skeletons from elk I would assume from this past winter. It was one thing to see a few mule deer and moose. I did see one 6x6 but that was a far cry from what I am used to seeing. Did the winter take its toll?
