guys I REALLY appreciate your time to chime in here!
the good thing about my work is I so work a 7days on and 7 days off schedule in the gulf of mexico, and I get 2 weeks vacation a year. So it will be perfect for going and doing some scouting, then take my 2 weeks vacation for the hunt. I'm looking @ a 24 hour drive but that isnt that big of a deal, especially if I can drag a friend along. I do have access to horses, I own 3... that would be a tough ride with 2-3 horses in tow, but people do it.
I have got to invest in a GPS, just never really needed one before.
I have a friend of mine that is kind of familair w/ colorado, he worked around Parachute for a little while, im not really sure about the area as far as wildlife goes.
I'm rather sure the hunt will be a spot and stalk w/ shots in the 400-600 yard range, I will be shooting a custom 7mm RUM topped with a ziess 6x24x56(I just had one stolen but it was a sandero not a custom rifle
) w/ 180gr bergers.
I am willing to put whatever I need into getting this done!
I will be looking into the RMEF in my area for sure!
There is a family that I know that normally goes yearly, but I doubt they'de allow me to tag along, they are pretty weird.
I'm sure I'll have more questions guys, but I'm very thankful for your help!
