Re: CO Elk Hunting and Loss of Freedom

National Forest. There was a good article in our local paper today about this. According to the story Rio grande NF is the only other NF here in Co. that allows it. Additionally it is being considered Flagstaff, Az and a limited retrival is allowed in Black Hills NF. As I stated in my previous post, each NF enacts rules that are tailored to their conditions, not just a copy of all the other NFs regs.

My experience is that BLM is a lot less strict in their allowable uses and plans.

    You knock yourself out with them letters to uncle Obama, Boss. Me,im gonna keep fighting for access rights on public land for all of us. Same principle as the gun grabbers taking the sat night specials and the assault rifles. let the camels nose under the tent and pretty soon you are sleeping with him.

    Re: CO Elk Hunting and Loss of Freedom

    Just got back from an elk hunt in CO's GMU 53 which was (is) also restricted to foot and horse traffic only. The area is rugged, very pristine and I can't imagine spoiling it with ATV's, pickups and the like. Yeah, it is a lot harder to get an elk out of remote areas, but IMHO, that is the way it should be. I'm not a tree-hugger or an enviromentalist but the last thing I want to see or hear while I'm out in the boonies of CO is a motorized vehicle. It was bad enough having a hunter(s) leading horses or mules through the area you are hunting (it happened twice) but I would have really be PO'd if it would have been atv's or other motorized vehicles. To me, the restrictions are a GOOD THING.
