Re: Does anyone hunt Colorado?

Hello...I'm new to this bulletin bored..But I was born and raised in Montrose CO and I still live here..I have hunted elk around here for the the last 25 yrs..Area 61 (South of Montrose) has some monsters but its a draw area..And the West Elk Wilderness (South East of Hotchkiss CO)is good too..

Re: Does anyone hunt Colorado?

lrh, I have backpack hunted every national forest in the state and most wilderness areas before they were wilderness areas. Have taken many nice bucks and bulls there. Don't worry yourself to death over it. Throw a dart at the map and when it hits a west slope national forest hunt it hard and if you are a good hunter you should do well. In other words get a map and find a secluded area with food, water and cover and you will find elk on the west slope. Colorado is an easy no fret state because elk are thick and you don't have to worry yourself silly about looking for a monster bull because it ain't gonna happen unless you have a bunch of points and then only in a handfull of areas do you even have a legitimate chance for a monster. But then people have different definitions of what a monster bull is. There are some pretty fair colorado bulls in the weminuche wilderness.

Thanks Ranger,

I think I have 2 Elk points and 3 deer points so I guess it will be a while before I can get into the monster bulls areas. I have had good luck in the past filling my tag, but like you said monster bulls are to find. Maybe, they need to raise the ante from 4 point to 6 point.

I hunt unit 82. Mt.Blanca right next to the Zapata Ranch has some really nice Bulls. I have hunted this area for 25 years and have killed some nice bulls. I have killed an Elk every year. The terriorty is rough but few people hunt this area. Also an excellent place for Mule Deer
