Re: Colorado Elk Hunt

Also keep in mind there are a lot of guys(we have used before) that will pack you in for @ 150.00 a person, minimum 4 people. Gets you away from all the crowds. They will drop you off and in 7 days or whichever season you hunting come pack you out. Its a heck of a lot better than beating feet every morning for a couple of miles to get to your area you want to hunt.

Re: Colorado Elk Hunt

ok....good to know! So, does that mean that I cant drive my truck off road a couple of miles? I hope that isn't a REALLY stupid question, but I've never even been to Colorado.

Re: Colorado Elk Hunt

It all depends on were your going and the weather. Keep in mind though if the weather changes which can in a minute things can get hairy. But there are areas you can get back many many miles. Farther than you want to drive. My recommendation is to bring a four wheeler to use on the 4x4 roads to get back in and park your truck out on the forest or county roads so if things do turn south you can get out. Or again have someone pack you in on horseback.
