Good luck

I have been watching your planning on this hunt and hope you get it all figured out and you have a great hunt.

I am planning on returning to Colorado for a self guided Elk Muzzle Loader 1st choice and Archery 2nd choice on stateland. Just remeber the Application Deadline is April 5th and coming fast. Me and one other guy is all we have that are scheduled for this years hunt, it's hard to set up such big plans with so many other guys, last time 6 of us went and after arriving at camp the one buddy who road with me said we are leaving Saturday and the hunt ended on Sunday I couldn't believe he hadn't said a word about this before, so my advice is make sure you get everyones plans in full and by the way I had to spend the day packing him out so he could ride home with the others, but I did get to hunt the last day.     I have only been there one time and can't wait to return so I say go to Colorado.

That's a bunch of BS!  He should have packed himself out and used his thumb to get home if he wanted to leave early!  That kind of a "friend" I don't need if he didn't say anything until you got out there on the hunt!!!

I have to agree that with a buddy like that can cause problems.  I have had a couple of hunting partners that told me that they were going to have to leave early and the solution is for them to drive themselves at least as close to the nearest town if their vehicle can't make it to where we are going to hunt.  I don't mind playing taxi for a ways to get them off of the mountain.

If you do SW part of the state Jim, I still may be in.  However, I still don't know about the full on guide service.  Don't know about spending that kind of $$$$$.
