Earlier in a thread I was asking for info on elk in CO and now the plans are being set. Depending on whether i draw a muley tag or not me and my cousin will be heading to CO for first or second season elk next fall. So far we are looking at the area above the Valecito resevior just west of pagosa springs. We are gonna use 2 mules to pack into the high country and TRY to get away from other hunters, please dont let me got shot at again!!!!
I am hoping this thread will continually evolve until the hunt and all of yall can help us prep for one hell of a hunt.
This is the evolving equipment list:
my eberlestock dragonfly
his eberlestock number 1 pack
my 270 Allen Mag
his encore 300win
Kathadin water filter
MRE meals (im burned out on mountain house)
Cabelas Extreme 4 season tent
2 US Military Sleeping System Bags (rated to -30deg)
swaro binos and spotter
Garmin GPS and standard compass navigation by him (ex-USMC)
Im sure im forgetting stuff but thats what i can think of for now.
So you guys tell me what you think about the land, equipment, etc and any tips and advice are more than welcome
We are simply good bull elk hunting, this aint no quest for the next BC record holder.
