I am putting together a rifle elk hunt in Colorado for the 2nd rifle season (Oct. 18-26) or 3rd rifle season (Nov. 1-7). Perhaps unit 521 or I am open to considering others.
I am looking for 3 to 10 hunters interested in organizing this hunt. Non-resident bull tags are over-the-counter and cost $526 plus a few small “fees” (less than $20). If born after 1949 you will need a hunter safety course card. This will be a “do-it-yourself” public land hunt and the exact location(s) can be determined by the group.
My regular hunting partners are cash and vacation-time short this year. I have hunted solo, in groups ranging from 2 to 12 and find that about 8 or 10 seams to work very well. With this size group meals and clean up and packing out game is a LOT less demanding on each hunter. Believe me, after spending all day walking up hill without air to breath, you don’t want to have to do ALL the cooking and clean up. Having a good size group sure can spread around camp duties.
I plan to pull my “off-road” pop-up trailer (can sleep 3 or 4) and an ATV in my 4x4 truck. Camping arrangements, camp “rules” , food, etc. can be determined by the group.
Normally, I scout the hunting area with my wife in July and go up a few days before opening day to set up and scout.
I live west of Norman, Oklahoma and with gas prices being what they are I was hoping to find one or two from this area to “truck pool” with. If not I can meet a Texas group on the way up. If anyone is interested in getting together call me at 405-650-2159 cell or email firstname.lastname@example.org
