I'm heading out to unit 13 in Colorado Thursday morning for my first ever elk hunt.  I don't expect to get much sleep the next few nights.

That's awesome! The anticipation only gets worse the more times you go, so welcome to the addiction  :-D


We are hunting second rifle this year. Unfortunately it's going to be a shorter trip since I hunted so much during archery. Got two and a half days of hunting to get it done.

I filled my 2 Utah OTC tags on the rifle opener Saturday morning! I hunted 11 days with my bow and managed to screw up every opportunity I got. But put down a bull and a cow with the boom stick!

Nicely done UtahJimmy! Looks like you had some packing ahead of you with two elk on the ground in the same day  :upthumb:

Yes sir! 4 miles from the truck, 1800' of vert to drop. My buddy and I deboned the cow and got her out in one trip (major suck)! Then came back with reinforcements for the bull. My wife, 2 friends, and I made quick work of him.

I won't be hunting elk again till after the general (b tag) season is over here on the 24th. Then I have a few days to chase elk with a rifle. Looking for a decent bull or I will wait till the December muzzleloader hunt for antlerless elk.

Rifle deer opens tomorrow but that is the same as the general elk opener and I usually avoid the woods then. I might try to find a place with no elk hunters and see if I can locate a deer to take a poke at. Duck opens here on Saturday so I may not hunt big game much till the orange army is out of the woods. I have my general deer tag and an extra antlerless whitetail tag.

All for unit one in north Idaho.

Just got back form my first Wyoming elk hunt, which was a great success!  Shot him in a large pond, and had a wet day from then on  :-D
