Well I had a 1st season (5 day hunt) E/S elk tag this time for unit 71 Colorado. We were going to hunt our archery area with rifles. I wasn't sure how it would be in the middle ot October compaired to Sept with bulls everywhare.
We back packed in 6 miles the day before the opener in a electrical storm with down pouring rain and hail, we were dround rats when we arived at elk camp. I had to build a fire and dry out everything.
Opening day it snowed and spit ice all day, Day two it was dense fog all day. Day three it cleared up and we didn't see any mature bulls.
On day four I decited to take this fat cow, she was to pretty to past and I wasn't about to shoot an inmature bull. She was only a half mile from camp.
Thats for looking!!!
