OK, I've been invited to join some friends on a elk hunt in Colorado GMU 171 I'm picking up a left over cow tag for first season, I figure for my first elk hunt and cow would be great.
I was wondering in anyone on here has hunted up there in the past. these guys hunt over around Gould and I was going up a head of time and scout but the only weekend I had free is no longer free I have to be in Broomfield that weekend for Broomfield days So I was looking for some advice. since I will only have the friday before season I want to make the best of it. Should I focus up high like 10,500 feet or do elk prefer lower ground? I don't know much about elk I've just been learning as I go. Also how do you guy heat your tents, wood stove, gas stove or coal?
Thanks for your help guys. hard to believe after hunting for over 20 years I'm a rookie again.
