Posted this in anything goes, but they suggested that I post here. Just moved here from SD with the Air Force two months ago. Been on a few hunts in the past. Deer with the Dad when I was 12 back in 86. Never got anything. Riffle elk in NE Colorado near Craig in 02. Cow tag and never saw any. Friend got a little, but tasty, 4X bull that year though. I have been station overseas for half of my AF career and recently came back statside in '05 to Rapid City, SD. Got my first Whitetail, a 9pt that year, and got a nice prarie antelope in '06 and also a nice doe to fill the freezer. I am now stationed in Colorado springs and plan on doing some serious hunting in the future. I love it. Going to go elk hunting with the wife probably 4th season in area 581. Since its close to home. I am looking to get into bow hunting in the next year and want to complete my mount/food collection. Need Elk, Mulie and bear! Can't wait to get to know some hunters in my area. Only been here two months. I don't get paid much in the AF, so guided hunts of any kind are out of the question, so me and the wife have to do what we can. I wish I could find some folks with some land in the mountains that would let us come and thin some herds. Thanks to all and talk to you later!
