I am deployed. I have a CO unit 67 cow elk permit and have not been able to recruit a partner. My brother may be able to make a 4th season hunt so I am considering ditching my unit 67 cow tag and both buying unit 18, 54 or 23, 24 tags.
I know 4th season can be extremely weather dependent. Is anyone willing to share any info on 18 or 54. I hunted 23/24 last season and harvested a calf second season. I have looked at the stats and 18 is the lowest for harvest % and know it borders the west side of the Park--so i am very curious.
We hunt hard, DIY and are in good shape. I cannot scout b/c of sitting in this wonderful craphole called Baghdad. I will get home ~8 days prior to this hunt God willing. Any one wanting to share any info on unit 18 please pm me. VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!
BTW - This hunt could mean alot to me...I was hunting last year in KY with my other older brother and after a week of hunting he unexpectedly passed away in my arms in the field after shooting a nice buck on Nov 15th. My remaining brother and I realize life is tender and can be gone in a minute and want to get back to hunting more with each other. Not trying to paint a sob story here...just the true feelings I have. Thanks again.
