Drew my first elk tag for unit 74 Co. I'm from Louisiana and this will be my first western hunt so any info on gear / tactics / or the area would greatly be appreciated. I will be hunting 1st season rifle on the Hermosa Creek Trail Head just above Durango. I've been reading and researching tons but this is a total diff. type of hunting as I mainly still hunt whitetail and duck hunt. Not sure what to expect so any and all advise will be greatful.
