Re: Elk - Unit 61 Colo.
Sorry to hear about your lousy luck. I was across the road from you in Unit 62 with a cow tag. I only saw 2 elk in 5 days of hunting/scouting, was lucky enough to kill one of them with a near 600 yd shot.
The wind and the moon and the leaves still on the oak brush all conspired against us. It would also be nice if the cattle ranchers actually got their cows out of there by the beginning of October like they are supposed to. There are definitely big bulls in 61 but you basically had a perfect storm of bad conditions piled up against you. Wouldn't it be nice if you could just hit an Easy Button and get rid of the cattle, 50 mph winds, full moon and oak brush leaves?
Sure hope you have better luck in 2009!
