Well, we just got the last of our gear loaded up and are going to leave out at about 4AM. We have been hunting this area in the past and were always close but never sealed the deal, and every year our friends do great in the first rifle season. We also never have gotten a mule deer tag, but we always see nice mulies up there. We finally got tags for the season that we wanted and will be hunting first rifle elk and second rifle mule deer. Our friends are seeing some nice bulls up there right now and they are supposed to be bugling also. I will start another thread and pose pics as we go. Who else is going to be hunting Colorado?
