Re: Need advice for Colorado elk hunt

Me and 2 friends are also planning our First DIY Elk Camping trip for 2013 Colorado 2nd Rifle Season hunt with OTC Bull Elk tags, So I've been researching till no end the areas, gear, maps. Pretty excited about it. Planning on heading out from Maryland with the Mega Cab and a 7x14 trailer packed with all kinds stuff.

How long of a drive is it from Maryland and how long you going to hunt? I've been researching lots of gear also. Are you buying much of yours online? I can't find much of that stuff in the stores where I live.

It looks like Denver is 26hrs for us, probably be hunting 5 days. I usually always research my equipment online and buy it there too where I can find good deals unless it's something that would cost a ton to ship or things like boots that I like to try on first.

In 81 you will have company! Pretty country and some elk in there, but be ready for alot of hiking, few animals, and lot's of people.

Good luck!

I have a friend with a success rate in 81 that far exceeds the state average. He does , however, get well off the beaten path. Are there lots of people in archery season?

Yes, archery is when I have been there. Hikers, hunters, and fisherman. There are elk, but it will not be like on TV where you bugle and they run in. The rEd Lake area gets hit HARD! Hit them TN hills with 50-lbs on your pack and you will have fun. Get towards the divide and you will loose many. There are a bunch of sheep and sheppards back there too.
