General Elk Hunting / Re: Ticks in CO Elk country
« on: December 28, 2020, 07:55:23 AM »
Shouldn't be a problem. I have never had a tick on me or on my dogs in NW Colorado in the past 40 years.

Not saying it couldn't happen, But it's not a likely problem.

Usually for a group application, they use the group member with the lowest number of points to decide if the whole group draws together.

But it your case it sounds like you all have 0 points. And besides you are looking at an OTC unit. So, there is really no need to apply at all. Just purchase your tag when you get here. Unless I'm missing something, you should be good to go.

At least this is how it works in Colorado. I can't speak for other states.

Anyone can correct me if I'm wrong. BUT! The person that has the grazing lease can ride in to check and maintain  drift fences, supply sheep camps, or any other needed reasons in accordance with his lease with the forest service or BLM. This applies only to the person holding the lease


this is strange. Rockie makes some of the best calls in the world. I have used them for years with no problem.

Archery / Re: hunting arrow issue

Agree with others. Way to heavy up front. There used to be an old saying about the spine of an arrow. " You can easily under spine an arrow. but it is hard to over spine"!

Try shooting some 150 or 125 gr. heads with your setup. I'll bet you will like em.

Try placing the call right behind your front teeth in the roof of your mouth and don't blow very hard at all. Then just say SHHHHHHH and you should get some sound. Remember, don't blow hard! Rockie Jacobsen has a good Youtube video on how to do it.

The reason there is a chance to draw those units with zero points is because very few hunters would even consider any of those units. However, there used to be a small herd south of Hayden in unit 13 but mostly on private land.

I'm baffled as to why you thing 13,15,and 18 might be good. I would not consider any of those three for an antelope hunt. Wyoming would be a much better choice than Colorado. Wyo67 had some good advice.

General Elk Hunting / Re: Nighttime activity with no moon or predators

Yes they are! :-D They tend to be more out in the meadows and will spend the dark hours between feeding and napping. Elk can see very well in the dark so that is no problem for them. You can often hear cow/calf herd talk as they keep in contact during the night. And often some bugling or glunking during the rut period.

Yep it is white meat and it does taste similar to pork but a little dryer. I've had it a couple of times.

Hunt Planner / Re: Grand Mesa Questions
« on: February 10, 2020, 08:08:52 AM »
Can't help you all that much about the Mesa. But you mentioned something about tire chains. And I don't care where you hunt in Colorado, you should always have tire chains, tow chains, shovel, saw or ax, and a good jack.(JUST IN CASE) Most of us out here carry a handy man or hi-lift jack. They can be used as a jack or a winch if you know how to use them. Where ever you chose to hunt, be prepared!

General Elk Hunting / Re: RMEF Video on Wolves in Colorado
« on: January 26, 2020, 10:32:53 AM »
Several years ago I took a picture of a wolf track with a measuring stick beside it and sent it  to the Meeker office of the DOW aka:CPW now. I even covered the track with a bucket to preserve it so they could come and see it for themselves. The track measured 3 1/2" wide and close to 5' long.

They didn't bother to look and explained that it was probably one of those large white guard dogs that ranchers have.

I personally own one of those large dogs. And trust me, their foot print is no where close to that large.

Just goes to show that the CPW has avoided the situation for years.

Great video Derek. But a waste of time for the most part putting it on hunter orientated web sites. It could have great merit if it were on Colorado media or social web sites.
