    UPDATE: I\'M BACK...heading to CO on Friday for elk hunt...wish me luck!

    Yep, me and the Old Man are hopping on the big old jet air-o-liner on Friday morning. Can't wait. Be out there all next week hunting near Gore Pass and Lynx Pass (outside Kremmling). Love being out there in CO...big beautiful country. Looking to forward to getting away from work and all the craziness.

    Wish me luck! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif See yall in a week or so! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    ------------------------------------
    UPDATE:
    Well, the elk hunt was a big fat bust. Didn't even seen any elk after 7 full days of hunting...discouraging for sure but still really enjoyed just being "out there". Record high temps didn't help at all...elk were down in the deepest darkest nastiest timber you can imagine, right where you can't get to them without being detected. One great story...guy on his first elk hunt, 2nd day into it, 15 minutes from the trailhead, heard elk grunt, gets downwind, bags a nice 6x6 bull at 50 yards. Man, talk about being at the right place at the right time! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif Well, I did get one hell o' a lot of exercise!!! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Sounds like fun. I got drawn for a cow elk hunt here in AZ in late November early December. I am stoked. Should be fun too. Good luck.

    I hope you had better success than we did. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif With the record high temps, instead of the typical snow in the high country at this time of year, all the elk in southwestern Colorado were hanging out in dark timber. We hiked and drove all over the unit and never saw a single elk. The moon was pretty bright, so it seemed that they were feeding well after dark and then disappearing before sunrise. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Bummer! That's a pretty expensive week to go home empty handed. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif But yeah, I still love being out there as much as possible! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
