General Elk Hunting / Colorado OTC Units
« on: December 03, 2020, 09:34:22 AM »
Good Morning All,
When you buy an OTC tag in Colorado, do you have to declare a unit number? If so, are you locked into that unit or can you go to different units? If so, is that how it works in most states?
Thanks is advance!

General Elk Hunting / Backcountry and Meat Questions
« on: October 26, 2020, 08:49:20 AM »
More questions. The more I watch and read, the more questions I have. If you go on a backcountry multiple day hunt, and you pack in let's say 6-7 miles on the first day. Do you hike further away on the next day and then even further the next, getting further from the truck each day? Or are you making a loop? I know you are likely going to say you go where the elk and wind takes you, but I can't imagine packing out a bull 7,8, 10 miles out. I know guys do it, but I think that would push me over my limit. Next thing, and I know there are a lot of variables, but how long do you "typcially have" to get that bull on ice? Are there any tricks to help preserve the meat on the way back to the truck? Do you prearrange a freezer location if you need one? Thanks All!
