UNIT 66 Colorado

Hey guy's, myself and 3 buddies just drew Elk tags for the 1st rifle season in Unit 66. We are doing a drop camp out of Coffepot Outfitters. Hunting out of the "Little Elk Camp". Any info or help on what to expect would be greatly appreciated. Have talked to references and got some information from them. Just joined this great forum and look forward to talking to you fellow hunters. Never been Elk hunting before and can't wait for October to get here!!1

I am real familiar with that camp area and outfitter. Be ready for the best elk hunting you can imagine with lots of big bulls............be physically prepared and have your weapons ready and sighted in. practice makes perfect.......good luck!!!

Drew a unit 66 1st season tag, will be hunting solo this year as my regular partner got called up to play in the big "sandbox" and had to turn back his tag. I will be backpacking in as usual and will be scouting third week of August, probably focusing on the La Garita Wilderness and looking for any suggestions regarding trailheads as good starting points, or even any National Forest areas that might be remote enough to backpack into. Thank you in advance for any advice.

Thank you, I'll put some leather on it next week, I got 5 days for glassing and pics, sometimes the scouting is as good as the hunt...and the packs a lot lighter too!
