Killin' Elks in Colorado.....

Me and a hunting buddy packed 10 miles in for the 3rd season with 4 elk tags and 2 deer tags and had an awsome hunt.
The snow was blinding and the weather got down to -16 at night in the tent, but we survived. The hunting was outstanding, and we tagged out on elk and got one deer and lost the other.
We moved camp a few times, and stayed in the animals. I took a nice 6x6 bull and Dan took a 4x4 and we both took cows.
I was glasing some 200 elk on the last day, and was thinking I kinda wished I still had an un-used tag.......oh well, there is always next year!

Here is the bull I took.......he was by far not the biggest I saw.....but I am very pleased with him.

....note how hard it is snowing......my hat is covered!

......and is that a Hunttalk patch I see on the vest?....

...and here is Dans' bull.......

Our camp......

.....it got down to 16 below zero and all I can say is it was brutally cold at night.

We had heaters going in the tent but there was still ice forming inside.........

Dan's big ass cow......

My cow........the fog was really bad that morning and visibility was almost zero.....

....all in all, it was a great hunt....a lot of work, and adjusting to stay in elk, but we both left it all on the mountain and are counting the days til next fall.......

Nice bull DS! From the looks of the snow, it looks like you earned it too. Wink
