yep I called him off of private they were going nuts. I still hear bugles. Deeper in the public land they were not too vocal because of the pressure from muzzle loading season the week before.

Thanks all:D, too those who say it is on your list of things to do. This hunt cost me just under $1000 bucks as many trips before to Colorado. So dont put it off too long. The cheapest way out is with 4 guys or how ever many you can fit in one truck. After years of doing this we have just about every thing we need, you buy a little each year and split the cost on large things like the tent. There are public lands every where so finding a spot is easy especialy in bow season. IMO the 3 main things you need are good boots, warm sleeping bag and BE IN SHAPE;)b. Look up the Colorado dow and get started. Most units are over the counter tags that you buy when you get there (Wallmart). Any way dont keep making excusses for yourself if you are serious. Remember elk hunting is like a banana split:) it is good and you will enjoy it, for me each time I go it's life changing. And if you get one it is the cherry on top. So enjoy your banana split. Disclaimer state wide success rate for archery elk is 11%.;)b
