Re: Elk Hunting Colorado Unit 161
Well I just arrived home from Colorado with two cow elk. My dad and I had our tags filled on the first walk within 15 minutes of the truck. Opening day of the 4th season and we had both of elk field dressed and ready for the drag out by 9:30. I don't think we will ever have luck like that again. I believe the elk were just starting to move in, the elk that we shot probably were part of the local heard. We helped my buddy hunt two more days and we seen a few tracks, yesterday we came real close to a bull but he gave us the slip. The two elk that we shot were the only ones we seen all week. We were hunting the timber NW of Walden, I don't believe there were any elk in the sage brush areas. I never even pulled my Sendero rifle from the case, I used my M700 Mountain rifle in 30-06 to get my cow at 80 yards broadside. My dad was using a M700 XCR 30-06.
