Elk movement and current elevations
« on: July 26, 2013, 06:20:02 AM »
I live in central Colorado (Nathrop) and am archery hunting GMU481.  Last night saw a herd of elk in a ranchers alfalfa next to the highway (8000').  I know their is a big herd on the northern slopes of Mt Harvard close to 14,000' as well.  We've had a rainy summer after a snowy spring and there is lots of green grass.  Any thoughts why a herd would drop down so low to graze surrounded by people when the hills are so lush this year?  Anyone have advice as to how a wet spring and summer will affect the elk come late August, early September?  Getting excited to do my final scouting and then get out there!
