I would look around Red Feather, Wellington and Masonville. They are all west or north of Fort Collins. I have a buddy that works for a guide that has a lot of luck north east of Wellington. It's in the foothills that they are getting a lot of Elk.
Have you had any luck getting a lion on your land? I've been looking near Red Feather and no luck yet. Found tracks but they were 2 or more days old. I do have a good lead on where I can find a few but they are pretty far in and I'm having trouble getting some one to hike in with me.
Hope all is well and don't forget that I would love to go to your land with you. I still have that guy out of Wellington that has dogs.
If you're like me and use a plastic tote to store your gear in then you might want to read further. When plastic totes are manufactured they are typically shipped with the lid on. This makes the inside of the tote smell like the plastic it's made of. To remove the plastic smell from the tote I use baking soda. I open the baking soda up and leave the box in the tote with the lid on for about a month to remove the plastic smell. I tried just leaving the lid off but I was still able to smell...
