Anyone want to hunt elk with me in Colorado?

Hi all. I moved to Texas last year, and I didn't get to hunt once last year. It seems like everything down here is leased land with fences. Much different from my experience in Ohio!

I have never hunted elk, but I have decided to give it a try in Colorado this fall. However, for safety reasons, I would rather have at least a second hunter with me. I am a 34 year old experienced whitetail/waterfowl hunter, and I love being in the woods. I am a Christian, and I am a businessman in Austin.

If anyone has space for a single hunter, please let me know! I am looking to spend $1,000-2,000 for the camp portion of the trip.

Nick

Well if we didnt already have two trainees hunting with us this yr I would have you along. We are hosting, sort of, two yng men from 3rd BCT at Ft Carson. One is a 35yo Staff Sgt the other is a 24yo Specialist and neither have hunted much(elk). Perhaps if you stay in touch by email if one of them can't make it for some reason. COlo OTC bull tags are 594.00 I think. Here's a link to getting a Big Game guide booklet: Brochure Order Form - Colorado Division of Wildlife

NickinOhio: 1-2000 grand should cover everything. I did my first 2 wk bow hunt in Co for 1500. I was 55. Did it alone. Now, If you do go alone your first year will be mostly a learning lesson. Least was for me.

I prepped by reasearching and getting maps of the area I wanted to hunt. Then I studied those maps, repeatidly. Then I studied them some more. I spent two weeks hunting/bow. Great experience. I hunted the same area the following year. Others in my group this time, fared well with meat in the freezer. Agin bow hunting.

Never been rifle. Pick the brains on this site, lots of useful info from other shooters/hunters.

If you do go alone. You won't be disapointed even if you don't score your first time in the field. You will learn a ton of stuff from hunting on your own.

Obviously, you might fare better if you can find someone to show you the ropes.

Good luck..ex ohioan

Now a Virginian----if thats possible, which it aint. So I guess I'm still an Ohioan!
