Headed out for my rifle elk hunt in unit 7 and 8. Hope we see some elk!
Best of luck to you! We were up there for 2nd rifle season and did not see a darn thing, just some old sign. Of the hunters that were in the area, we only heard of one who took a cow opening morning. Talking with the lady at the hardware store in Red Feather, she said she had not heard of anyone having much luck this year.
I just got back from my elk trip to Colorado and must say that I learned quite a bit about hiking in that one trip. I researched all I could on the internet and thought I was prepared going out. For the most part I was but I want to pass on a few major things I learned that helped me drastically!
1. Pack light. I know this may sound like common sense but believe me. After reading everyone's advice on what you need to pack, chances are your pack will end up weighing more...
