Elk Hunting Tips & Tactics / High Altitude 12k+ archery Elk

Hey Everyone,

I applied and expect to draw unit 49 in CO this year. Looking at starting to hunt on Sept 22ish through the end of the season. Camp is set right at tree line. Never hunted elk that high before, any suggestions?

Thanks everyone!

Other Big Game Hunting / Baffin boots
« on: June 24, 2019, 01:03:39 PM »
Hi everyone,

Im heading to Canada for a moose hunt in fall of 2020. The guide service Im going with recommends I get insulated rubber boots and mentioned they use Baffin boots. Anyone have any experience with these? Im bringing hiking boots to switch into once we get out of the boats but looking for anyone with experience hunting/hiking with Baffin. They are recommending these because of their removal insulation. Is there another brand I should consider as well??

Thanks for the help.

Last year we were hunting CO pre rut, opening weekend archery to be exact. Heard maybe 1 or 2 bugles, unlikely another hunter,  but we did set up in good sign areas and called, a mix a cow calling and bugling. We called about every 20 - 30 minutes at times. We had a few elk come through our general area, 1 time is was a pair of cows, one time it was 2 satellite bulls. Definitely not right after our calls and their body language told me they werent really looking for what was making the noise. My question is, is it more likely that these elk were just passing through and we happened to see them or were they responding to our calling? If we called when we could see them they became alert and nervous often worked away from our calling.

I know there are a lot of variables here, but for the most part we played our cards right, well hidden, good wind, caller set up away from the shooter, etc.

any input would be appreciated! Thanks!
