I would shoot the cow on the left and fill the freezer.

So did you take 318 northwest out of Maybell? Get a blk map. GMU11 is on the south side of 318. Plenty of public land. I would stay north of 40 if it was me. Do not give up they will be there.

Well that was a tough hunt. Dry, dusty, windy for the first two days. Rain, sleet, snow on Friday. Saturday turned up no animals nor did Sunday. More hunters in the area than we have ever seen. Still had fun.

Dont get me wrong, we hunt this area during 4th season to coincide with the migration. Just not enough snow to push them there. My friends 14 year old son did take a four point bull on opening morning.

Thats why its called hunting and not shooting.

So the time has finally come, will be heading up to the high country tomorrow and season starts on Wednesday. Main objective is put meat in the freezer. Got cow and  bull tags in my pocket, box of my special loads for the smoke pole. Hardest part is setting up my wall tent and that's not that hard.  Should be good, migration is in full swing into the area we hunt. Full moon has passed and it is looking like we  might even get some weather on Friday.  ;-)

Can get my truck two miles or so in on what is called an access road from the last pavement. Set up camp there. Use my quad to get another two to three miles in. Stash the quad and hunt all day on foot in further. Have chains for the truck when it all turns slick.

Have had my Davis Wall tent for a long time now. Xl cot and -35 degree sleeping bag. Wood burning stove. Been in minus degree weather and blizzards and never been concerned. A lot easier to get back in where others dont go.

Elk Hunting Tips & Tactics / Re: Picking a Unit
« on: October 28, 2017, 10:42:21 AM »
Follow the elk. We hunt a specific season and area based on the seasonal pattern of the elk. The only variable is if the weather pattern drops snow in the weeks before we hunt. They are not there in the numbers we see in the earlier seasons. Moderate elevation and able to use my quad to get back to where I need to be. Situated in a massive piece of public land.

Amazing how each year someone mistakes a damn near black mule with shovels for a white rump.
