HinCo, Yes we hunt public BLM land. There is private land there as well. No need to worry
About that.

Update, we went four out of six. A 6x4 bull, three cows. Just simply ran out of time. There was no shortage of elk. Mule deer population seems to be booming as well. Forth season GMU 3 is first and foremost a meat hunt. We have reason to be very thankful this year.

On another note there were a lot more fresh wolf tracks this year. We have come across them over the years, just seem to be more.

Hope everyone else were successful as well. Now to settle in for the winter.

General Elk Hunting / Colorado 4th Season

So here we are, madness in politics, pandemic expanding, and time finally going by. :crazy:
 With all of that I am pulling out out my equipment, packing my gear, and loading the truck. Finally truly getting away from all the noise so I can focus on finding wapati and filling the freezer.

 Will be going up Tuesday early to set up the wall tent and make camp comfortable. So come Wednesday morning I will be on my favorite point looking over three draws that have always been good to me. With multiple snows already hitting the west Elkheads  it feels right.

This is what brings brings me joy. Good luck to all and shoot straight. :-D

General Elk Hunting / Re: Tire chains

We hunt northwest Colorado and carry chains because when the clay gets wet it becomes slick. We use actual chains. I carry a set for the front and a set for the rear on my 4wd. My thoughts are better to have and not need then need and not have. We also have chains for our atvs for the same reason.

Shane I have not drawn antelope tag in 6 years in an area that only requires one preference point. So now I have 6 PPs. If you figure out the secret combination please  share it.

I have a buddy who is now up to 12 points and did not draw a tag in an area that requires 5.

CPW has in their infinite wisdom made drawing an antelope tag a rare thing. That being said, look at  GMU 11.

General Elk Hunting / Re: Are elk hunters social distancing?
« on: July 08, 2020, 10:32:16 AM »

This is not political. Wearing a mask is not about any of us. It is about everyone we come in contact with. Whether you agree or disagree is not the point. We owe it to each other and everyone else to do what we can. Wearing a mask is a small inconvenience
that could help us get through this. Just my thoughts.

Ive hunted it. Used to go in at the access point at Stillwater reservoir. Yes there are elk there. It is packed with hikers, campers, hunters, etc. Going in from Trappers lake is the same. Did not seem to make any difference if I was a mile in or six miles in. The quietist point was always closing weekend of archery season. Elevation was not the factor, pressure was. Good luck and have fun.

Elk are creatures of the edge. Proximately to cover, water, and a path to escape that does no skyline them are areas to look for sign in.

No antelope for me this year. :( Guess I'll see how the second draw goes.

Got charged for an elk tag and got a preference point so I think its safe to say I got my  :dk: second choice for elk.

No tag did get preference point which is what I expected since I used 15 points two years ago to take my buck in gmu10.
