I was fortunate to take this nice cow in Colorado, OTC unit. We seen a lot of Elk and all three of us drew on Elk but I was the only one able to take one. This was my son's (birdman11) first Elk hunt and I think he's hooked now !

Don't forget to go Snipe hunting while there....

Been up there before, north of there the elk can make big circles around the area. One day they are there in one canyon, then not back there for another 2-3 days. In that area, if spooked they can go a couple miles before settling down.
In the ravines lower down, make sure to check every ravine, just because you are 30 yards from the brush don't assume there is nothing there. Chunk rocks into the brush or whatever, you might get surprised.
Good luck.

This is about how our hunt in unit 76 in Idaho went last week except the temps were in the 20's early heating up to the 80's in the afternoon. Sure makes it hard to dress accordingly.

We saw 2 cows with calves and 1 spike. Never heard a sound. We cut some wolf tracks and think that may have shut them up.

We would leave camp around 3:30, drive around an hour, horseback in around an hour, hunt all day, and then reverse the travels returning to camp around 10:30. That routine sure made for a long tough hunt.

I'm headed back up in the morning to try to get that mule deer tag filled.

I've got one hunting buddy still needing to fill two elk tags (either sex and a cow tag), and two more coming up next Sunday with either sex elk tags to fill as well.

I'll be out for 12 days this time.

Still deer hunting, no big bucks for me yet.
Wish I had a second bull elk tag though.
Picture from this morning.
He is a 6x5, barely split on one side. Watched him for about 45 minutes at 11,000 feet.

Good luck Ross. Was up there last week, got home Tuesday night. Everything was very quiet. Saw a few elk in the Love Mesa area but never was able to draw on one. Last night there(Sunday) heard three bugles down in 61 about 10:30pm. Hopefully it will be better for you. Also saw a few bucks but nothing jaw dropping.
