I've had a RipCord for several years.  Had an issue with the original cord wearing and RipCord replaced it quickly and with no questions.

Agree with Nate.  A little heavier would be great, but confidence and accuracy are more important than a few grains on the arrow. 

I've killed a few elk with the Easton Axis weighing in at a total of 400-405 grains with a wrap, standard nock, Bohning blazer vanes and a 100 grain broadhead.  The only thing I have different is I shoot a cut on contact broadhead after switching up from Muzzy and Slick Tricks.  Taken elk with all three broadheads with no issues or recovery problems. Personal preference to be able to touch up the sharpness on the blades.

Using a Hoyt Charger with a 27" draw at 65#.

Good luck

Anyone else having issues with module 17?  I'm getting a 404 error on all menu options.  I haven't had any issues with any of the other modules loading today.

Welcome Brian.

I've never hunted Colorado, so I can't help you with where to hunt there.  Sounds like you're well on your way with regards to preparation.  I'd encourage you to watch and re-watch module 6 and still be prepared to be frustrated by the wind/thermals.  Randy Newberg has an excellent e-scouting series on YouTube if you haven't checked it out.

Good luck,

I have zero knowledge of the Nosler rifles, but have killed a few elk with the .270.  Most recent couple were with the Federal Premium 150gr Nosler Partition rounds.  I had been using the Remington Core-Lokts before that.

Good luck.  Most of the guaranteed draw units are in northern Wyoming, but doe tags are relatively cheap and if you do your research for areas with public opportunities versus tag availability, it can be done in a weekend trip.

Is there a reason you're tied to Colorado?  For doe tags, Wyoming has several areas that had 100% draw odds and several others that were 75% or better.   

There's also a few areas that did not require a preference point to draw a type 1 (any antelope) tag last year.  You'll likely see the same access issues with those areas, but it can be done.

I understand this about the rut as well. Doesn't the leaf color change have to do with the same factors? less sun light?

Thanks a lot of the replies. I have been too busy chasing whitetails to look at a computer...unless at maps.

I really appreciate it and it gives me things to consider heading into 2020
Leaf color of the aspens in the west is way more affected by temperature and available moisture than a specific date on the calendar.  This year in central WY,we had green leaves on almost all aspens until the end of September - and it had been very warm month.  Usually we get a good freeze and cold temps in the mountains that causes the aspens to turn and drop most of their leaves by mid September.

Have you tried different sizes/types of diaphragm calls?  There are certain ones I can't even make a decent cow call with.

My Dad (71 last month) has been out here chasing elk, deer and antelope with me for the past several years.

I will add that during the last 10 days in the OTC areas, putting on over 50 miles on my boots, I got on 5 different bulls. I basically had to get right on top of them and bugle before they responded.

And ya know what? Every one of them was by themselves, on a ridge resting and not a cow around.

That tells me the big breeding time had past

This is what we saw in the south central WY general areas as well.

StrongTower - Depends on the wind.  If it was right, I would have badgered him (raking/groans/challenge bulges) until he came back.  If he didn't bolt down the mountain, he didn't smell you, so you should have been good to begin the chase.
