New to this forum, but am very impressed. I have been hunting in SW Mississippi for several years now and love to hunt deer and turkey. One of the guys I work with has been hunting in Co in unit 481 for some time. We are hopefully going to make a trip together for next year's season for elk and mule deer. Hopefully we can draw a combination tag for 1st season. I recently found out my sister will be moving to Denver this Dec. and may be going to visit her sometime early next year. I am planning to do a little scouting in the area just to get a lay of the land and do some hiking.
I know it is a bit pre-mature but I am excited to make the trip already. I realized I have a lot of equipment I would like to purchase to be prepared for this trip and have started to compile a list of equipment. Although I would love to purchase a new 300WSM, my funds are limited so I will stick with my 7mmRemMag which is a tackdriver for now. Besides a gun, I would like to see any tips or suggestions on equipment that anyone would have that maybe is not mentioned on most general supplies list that some of you veteran elk/mule deer guys would like to share. It can be anything from favorite socks to gps units, game bags, whatever. If you have any hunting tips, have hunted this area before or anything else, I would like to hear whatever tips /suggestions you might have also. Thanks for any input guys and if you want to post any photos feel free.
