Re: colorado elk draw results are out

Great story Bert. Timing is everything. I agree 100% about the leg work. This was our third hunt in 49. Going once every 4or 5 years is getting old I had a chance at several smaller bulls last fall but the really nice 6x6 that I was on just beat me ](*,) . I got to within about 80 yards of him 2 tim...

Re: Favorite Rifle?

I think my all time favorite has to be my Rem mld 700 XCR. 300win mag with a zeiss conquest
on top to help my old eyes. It's a natural born killer. :thumb

Re: colorado elk draw results are out

Good lunk in 49 Zatarain. I hunted there last fall 1st rifle season with
a buddy and he killed a nice 6x6 while I ate tag soup. It's a good
unit but very rough. If you can use mules or horses then your odds
of success go way up. Good Luck and be careful !! Later Baker

Re: Why do you elk hunt?

The great thing about Elk hunting is that two people can view the same sport totally different but still love it to the point of obsession. When I dream and plan for my next elk hunt a big fat cow NEVER pops into my mind. I'm a trophy hunter. There I said it and don't apologize for it. My family and...

Re: Why do you elk hunt?

Great topic Speedgoat,thanks for posting. I'm not much of a writer I'm usually hard pressed to put my thoughts to written words so please excuse my errors. I've loved hunting ever since I was a small boy hunting birds and such with my bbgun. It always seemed like a very natural part of my life. My D...
