I started adding some photos from some of my Colorado trips for ya'll to browse. Hope ya'll enjoy them as much as I enjoy looking at the photos in the other galleries. Let me know what you think. I will keep posting more pictures as I find them.
First off, "Welcome to BGH !" I did not get to welcome you on your first post. I am very impressed to see someone else willing to share so much in so little time. Congrats on some fantastic animals !
It looks like you have done very well in my home state of Colorado. We used to have 11 guys come out hunting with us from Tennessee and Arkansas in the 70's and 80's. Most from around Milington and surrounding areas, even one gentleman that was the mayor of Shakerag (the population 99 1/2, the bear ate the other 1/2). They were a great bunch of guys, but sadly most of them have passed on.
I hope to see alot more pics and maybe read some more stories.
Out here in Colorado, and in the units that I haunt, it is a tricky game to figure out how far to pack in on a rifle hunt. You want to get away from the masses that have moved game away from the roads but might want to stay close enough that you are taking advantage of the animals forced movements. There is no universal distance but I like the 1.5 to 4 mile range for day hunts where I am not planning on bivying out. This keeps you in that productive buffer zone where the animals are really...
