I live in Buena Vista. I can see snow on the peak of Cottonwood Pass. It's much lighter today than yesterday, so it's melting fast. Next week is good weather, and any snow at Taylor should be gone fast. If there's any there at all.
1st rifle season should be perfect weather. 2nd rifle is still an unknown.
When placing a trail camera don't just look for a well used trail. What you want to do is look for a freshly used trail off by itself that goes from a north facing ridge, thick forest, brushy knob or some other similar bedding area to a food source. Don't forget water sources. Especially in the summer months the deer need water so look for a good trail going down too a creek surrounded by thick cover and place the camera 100 yards up from the water source.
Scent control is very important...
