Unit 13 Cow tag

Last weekend my girlfriends dad invited me to tag along on an elk hunt.  Seeing as I am about to ask his daughter to marry me I agreed and picked up a list B tag for Unit 13.  I have never been to Unit 13!! looks like there is a lot of private ground with some BLM and STL mixed in.  Just wondering if someone could point me in the right direction.

 

Thanks

Man, I can't wait to read the report when you get back from this one.... Wink

Seriously though, sounds like a cool opportunity.  Just curious, does he know you are planning on asking her?  Or, do you plan on discussing that when you 2 are out in the woods?

Get a tag, and go have fun.  Just make sure to let him have the first shot opportunity at an elk, and volunteer to pack out all the meat yourself. He'll like that.

Good luck!!!

Wow! you have some kahoonies.

Wow! you have some kahoonies. Going in to the woods with your soon to be father and law and expect to come out alive? Your my hero.

I have never hunted in Colorado so I can't with the unit your asking about, but I had to make a comment on the proposal situation. All I can say is Good luck and have fun. I'm sure he is a nice enough guy. I hope you can drop a nice elk and put some meat in the freezer.

I think that he assumes that I am going to talk about it because her sister is helping me plan the night I purpose and she can't keep secrets.  I am really looking forward to the hunt though.  I was looking through statistics on the unit and it has about a 40% success rate although that is probably increased to high numbers of private ground.  I'm just excited to get in the woods next weekend!
