Just registered after being a lurker for a couple of months. Really have enjoyed reading this site and all the great hunting pics and stories and great info. This past 06 season got a shot at a cow, but didn't collect during muzzle loader season. Bagged a doe antelope for that rifle season and collected a nice little three point buck for the first combined rifle season. We hunt around the Gardner Co. area.
I live in Pueblo Co and commute to work in Colo Springs. In the alfalfa fields just after the Pikes Peak Int. race way and right next to the Power Plant on the left side of I-25 heading North I have seen deer in those fields often. In the past year on three different occasions only I have seen a herd of about twenty or more cow elk in those fields the last time about two weeks ago in the evening.
The next morning after the last sighting two weeks ago on my drive I spotted two grand bulls smack dab in the middle of those fields about two hundred yards from the Hwy. I hadn't seen them again until my drive this morning when I spotted a car parked on the frontage road. I figured it was someone who had spotted some game and hopped it was the bulls again. Indeed it was those two bulls big they look at least five more likely six pointers.
Just wanted to alert any guys who commute that way. Great to see big bulls like that so close to the prairie.
