My 11 year old son and I wen for third season and didn't connect on any elk, sadly only had a OTC bull tag and watched hopelessly as a cow trotted by broadside at 100yds. This happened while dragging out a 4x4 muley, so we still had a great time. It was my first time out in 18 yrs, his first ever.Got the CDOW brochure this week, it's fun to start thinking ahead, especially with a 12 yr old now.
One challenge we faced hunting on public land was making sure we weren't accidentely crossing the wrong fence on to private. We were in the 28/37 GMU's. I know this is an age old common challenge, and we did ok with BLM/FS maps, compass and some google earth print outs.
We ran into a guy that had an app on his I-Phone that worked with the GPS in his phone, and would pin point his location using an overlay similar to the Colorado Hunting Atlas tool on the CDOW website. Should have asked him at the time what it was, but didn't. So, I am just wondering what anyone has used an app like this...I think it might be one from Cabela's. Or any other GPS tools that might help without having to spend arms and legs. Thanks for any input.
