General Elk Hunting / Re: Thinking About Moving Camp
« on: August 09, 2017, 11:52:43 AM »
My base camp is like a hub on a wagon wheel. Since Ive hunted my areas for almost 30yrs it haas grown to over 100sq miles. Each day i headed out to different areas until I find elk. Some days I drive 20 miles to hike in & hunt an area and another day I will drive 2 miles and hike in and hunt that one.

Its not uncommon for me to put 600-800 miles on my truck in 10 days of elk hunting. What works for me, may not work for others, but we sure shoot the hell outta the elk

It seems like Im always moving my camps.

Rarely, and I mean rarely, do I ever have a camp I can hunt from the tent

Not too sure about shooting that guy.
There's a lot of cows and bigger bulls in the area.

General Elk Hunting / Re: South Facing Slopes

South facing slopes tend to dry up first with the typical late summer weather. If it tends to stay moist with the monsoonal trends, south facing slopes can be good hunting

Regardless of the facing of the slope, concentrate on the upper half of the mountain

Check out this funky bull

I don't think his brow tine is 5 inches but it's close, but he does have 4 points on his left antler

Scouting / Trail Cameras / 4 different cameras, 4 different locations
« on: August 07, 2017, 01:37:06 PM »
Checked my 4 trail cams over the weekend. All on Colorado OTC public land and 1/2 mi - 1.5 mi from my vehicle

Now I have to decide which area to hunt

Hunting Gear / Re: Preferred camo brand/pattern???

The best pattern I have is the old Cabelas Seclusion 3D. Cant buy it anymore but a person just disappears in the woods with that pattern
