General Elk Hunting / Re: Preference points and tags

Hopefully this will burn itself out before its time to hunt. Stay safe and thank you for your service.

So with the entire world in a meltdown, the question is whether this will blow over so we can do what we love to do chasing wapiti? Interesting to get others thought.

Nice buck, and to think I go down to the redneck riviera for the fishing. May need to rethink that.

I knew Phil all the way back to the Elk Camp days. He was one of a kind and will be missed. Godspeed my friend now you can hunt the high country for eternity. God Bless Phil Weaver.

General Elk Hunting / Re: RMEF Video on Wolves in Colorado

This fiasco is on DOW. Although for years there have been sightings and reports of wolves in Colorado they made it a policy to deny it so they would not be required to have a wolf program. Now this misguided initiative is coming they are putting out photos and videos showing there are already wolves naturally populating northwestern Colorado.

Weather warmed up, elk were pushed hard in 3rd season. Worked hard to  figure it out. Saturday morning headed off a herd of 20 cows and 6 bulls. 162 yards picked one out, went to take off the safety and it was stuck with dust and dirt. Jacked the bolt back ,banged the rifle butt on the ground to shake it loose. No luck. Over the ridge they went. Cleared the problem and jumped on the quad and took off to head them off on the next saddle. Beat them there and our group took 2 bulls and a cow as they passed. As the herd kept going west it sounded like world war three. Many elk were taken. Sure was warm and dusty. All of the previous weeks snow had melted. Broke camp early this morning and am back on the front range.

The truck is loaded and gassed up, ammunition is reloaded. Reports of the migration in full swing. Heading out in the morning with one stop planned in Craig to stock up on food and gas. Then out to my favorite spot to set up my canvas house in the wilderness and plot my contact with the wily wapiti. This is my favorite time of year. :clap:

I put my percolator on my wood burning stove the night before, then the next morning I push it next to my flue pipe and it is boiling in less than ten minutes. Fill up my thermos and out of the wall tent I go. The benefits of hardwood and coal for fuel.

Hunt Planner / Re: Who Has Their Day to Day Hunt Planned?

I agree from my first day set up I can glass a lot of territory and have seldom not seen elk. This motivates me to keep working the plan.
