Unit 20 Freebie...

My 12 yr old son and I had a great 3rd season hunt, his first. It was so warm and sunny we did not see even one elk. However, we were in deer all day, I got a nice little 3x3 and my son had a couple opportunities but didn't connect. But we were spotting, stalking, talking all day so the lack of elk wasn't too big of a deal.

 

But...he still has his cow tag and can hunt late season in numerous units. We live in Longmont, and so I am hoping to get an early morning or two up in Unit 20 since it's close when and if we get some real snow up there. We'd both be ecstatic if he could connect on a cow. Any start points, access points you are willing to share would be appreciated. Or experiences in the unit. Send a pm if you like. The nice thing about this is we get to go out again!

thanks

We were in unit 28. Our first day we saw 25 does and no bucks. Being 3rd season I thought they would have been beginning to group together. The day I got my buck, it was with another one that unfortunately my son missed a shot at (although he was so pumped to get to have a chance) but they weren't with any does. By the last day we began to see some mixed groups. I am hoping to get  4th season draw next year to really hit the rut.
