Default Something else

Scott, A couple things nobody else has mentioned. If you can hunt with somebody, do it. You'll have your hands full if you get an elk and buddy can assist plus add a little safety if that person is in shape and acclimated to the elevations. Also, put a simple survival kit in your pack. If you twist and ankle you might end up spending a lot more time out there than intended, and a little prep can save your life or somebody else that you happen to find injured. Maybe I'll see you during the 2nd rifle season!

What a great bunch of info!

Wish I could have gotten this when I first started elk hunting Co. instead of trial and error lol.

Im from the flat lands also have been hunting (bow) Co. every year since 95. Only thing I can ad is take your time start earlier and the lighter you can pack the better! Every ounce makes a huge difference I carry one bottle of water I take a purifier if you can find water it will save you a lot of weight .

One other thing is you have to sleep good and eat good you will burn lots of calories this is like a marathon you want to be able to hunt as hard on the last day as the first so pace your self . Oh yeah don't no what it is about the Aspirin thing but it works . Maybe thin blood gets around faster so delivers O2 faster to the muscles just guessing

And # 1 have a great time its an awesome experience!

Good luck!

This is GREAT! we are hunting this area 1st elk rifle season and some of the things that were pointed out I had not seen or read anywhere. Never would have thought of lip balm.
Calls? Elk still respond come mid Oct?

Call Willie at Crazy Horse Outfitters he can take you on a couple day hunts. He's been outfitting there for 20+ years. I hunted with him a couple years ago and called in a herd bull for him.
