Late Cow Hunt (CO)

Just found this site, thought I might test it out Wink

Does anyone have any late season cow elk area's that they would recommend ?

My son turns 12 in late November so I put him in for and easy to draw cow tag so that he could hunt in any late season once he hits the magic age.
Right now we will probably hunt on Fort Carson since the season is open so long (til Jan31) and its right down the road, and maybe a trip out to GMU 10 during its Dec cow hunt.

Any other suggestions ? anyone know a landowner that wouldn't mind a kid coming out ?

Thanks

JLM, you should be able to locate public land hunting in gmu 10 considering large stretches are blm. The area around dinosaur, the white river basin, rangley, and bordering dinosaur national monument are good places to start scouting by map or in person.

Good luck to you and the son!

Thanks guys. If at all possible I'm gonna try to avoid the drive out to GMU 10 even though that would probably be the easiest hunt since I have family friends that live in Rangely and they are rabid Elk hunters, but that is a looooong drive from the Springs.

I'll mainly concentrate him on Fort Carsonsince there are a lot of elk and it being 6 miles away. Looking at maybe going to GMU 36 where I deer hunt. Seen alot of elk in the area.

A son's elk hunt

Jason -

just wanted to say that I am pleased to see someone wasting no time providing their children with the opportunity to do some awesome hunting! Right on, good luck to your son!
I'm off for my first Colorado elk hunt this fall, and will be praying for your family's happiness while I'm out there.
