Has anyone had success in the Holy Cross Wilderness during archery elk season? If not What wilderness areas would you recommend(for seeing elk and having a reasonable chance at) for a pack in bivouac hunt for archery season elk?
I trust your advice, you were on the money about the Comanche peaks (GMU 19). I crossed the peaks wilderness last season a few times and saw 2 bulls and no cows. It was hard hiking and hunting due to dead-fall. I did see 2 bull moose at 20 yards. but not what I was hunting. My dad and brother are coming from out of state, and I would like to make the trip worth the time and expense. Killing is one thing but just to have the opportunity to draw my bow back would be nice.
I will admit, I love deer plots.
I love planting... even the garden at home.
What I do not like are high cost farm implements.
I found myself in need of a cultipacker for clover and other small seed - but could not find a decent deal on a small unit.
OK, fine... I will make one!
The materials were very simple... some plastic corrugated sewer drain pipe, some metal, 2 bearings and some concrete and you are in business!
I cut the pipe, in this case, to 46" wide - as I intended to pull this one...
