Montana,Special draw area 4** either sex,27 miles from the house,rifle(300 WBY,30-06,300 Ultra,.300 Win,458 Win ,Mag,45-70 Gov't,308 Win,338 Win Mag will decide the mornings I go).If need be will pull my 12ft 72 shasta camper up there and camp out 3-4 days @ a time.

Game plan,leave the house about 3 am get up the mountain and wait on the sun and the other 74 lucky bastiches that drew to drive the elk to me.Mid day nap and glass the 74 lucky bastiches crawl around like ants below.Mid-Mid day still hunt the thick timber on my way to a well used game trail heading out to evenig feeding areas.

I was in New Mexico 3rd week of September. Public land hunt, with outfitter. Camp (wall tents, etc) set up off dirt road and hunted spots every day that required driving to. Some action close to road and one spot (wilderness area, so long walks, but...bulls - yes, hunters - no!)
Didn't slit my tag, but had 7 bulls "in" going nuts, although they stayed a bit further out than previous hunts in this same area. Archery hunt. Smallest bull seen was a 4x5, biggest was a toad of 6x6. Many in close, screaming, but didn't show...so many more than 7 bulls going!!

- I'm hunting CO between Steamboat and Kremmling. This is where I hunt deer. Not a top Elk unit but I think I know where they are now so I pulled a cow tag to try it out. This will be my first time going for Elk. How much time I spend will depend on filling the deer tags. My first priorty is to get my son a deer.
- 2nd Rifle, combined
- We camp off a road at the base of Middle Carter Mountain. I'll drive up to the elk area, park and start walking.
- I leave on Oct 17th

Good luck to you all and shoot straight,

Spud

With the economy the way it is, horns were secondary on this trip !!!!

That cow will taste better than just about any bull except maybe a spike!
