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!
