We finished up yesterday morning. In Centerville now filling feeders. Only one cow elk in our group of 4. Too hot. Little movement during daylight

Thatís the way it goes with elk hunting.

We had some decent movement/bugling action early morning Saturday-Monday until about 8:30 and then from about 6:30 to dark in the evening. Our last day to hunt was Tuesday and it was totally dead. We left out of Chama at 3 am and on our ride out of the ranch elk were moving everywhere.

Day #9 just north of Chama nm in Colorado. Last afternoon for me. May hunt the morning if I see improvements. But 4 hunters. No elk even seen while hunting but heard a couple bugles. We hike 2-4 miles off roads a day. Seen 4 piles of day or so old terds and tracks but that is the excitement of our hunt so far. Still a great time and great views but this will be my last Colorado adventure. Eating $1500-2k worth of tags and gear last 2 years and this year more hunters then last. We will just remain hopeful for New Mexico draw for sure and if not we will spend a week camping for lots less ha.

Congrats on the Bull and congrats to all who were able to hunt this year weather you put one in the freezer or not. I had a great hunt that ended a little early as 62 year old knee decided to quit 3/4 way up a ridge. I will be eating venison this year and training my knee for next September.

Sorry to hear that, not seeing any game was always my biggest fear. You can still buy a preference point for Wyoming right now and it sounds like their general units are really good. It might be a good $50 investment if you are interested in hunting there in a year or two.

Just got back from where you're going on Friday morning. Very little bugling going on. I got to 100 yds once. Saw elk most days.

Couldn't close the deal. Very little bugeling. Had some close encounters. It was hot, dry and windy. But it was still a great time

No elk in the freezer this year. Lots of mule deer and a few bears no bugling at all.
It was hot & dry but o elk at the water holes.
Still better than being in the office.

We got back yesterday from southern Colorado. We were very fortunate to put a big cow down. It was hot, slow and tough but we made it work. Ready for 2019 to be here.

My first elk hunt was a dream come true. Public ground in N central NM. Got there a day before opening morning on the 15th an they were starting to talk, numerous encounters that were just inches away. The first 3 days of season were an all day nonstop bugle fest it was AWESOME!, the 3rd evening I killed my first bull on a wallow. Im hooked to say the least. 67 yard shot, he fell within 20 yards. An got it all on video!

My son and I got into an area in the Gravellys range in southern Montana loaded with elk. He got a 5 point yesterday, weíre bring first trip of elk meat to his house and then going back today for 4 or 5 more days for me.

The HECS suits are remarkable. With camo and good wind I had over a dozen cows grazing 8 yards from me, looking at me with curious looks sitting on ground behind a tree.

I hunted the 19th-24th in unit 46 in New Mexico. The first day and a half, we saw elk and heard bugles, then they all just shut-up and vanished.
Empty freezer this year. The long 51 week wait starts now.

Ah man. I was kind of thinking it was just where I was.
Too bad it was the same thing in the Gila. I've been trying to get back to 15 since I drew a tag there 8 years ago.

The love/hate battle of archery elk hunting is alive and well in my head.
It's hard to explain, but I want to sell all my gear and never do it again, but at the same time, I can't wait until next September.

I would imagine these will go fast. I already have a cow tag but I would jump on these if I did not and they were just a little cheaper.

I ended with my last hunt today- solo and passing griz warning signs.



I humped up the mountain, and when I hunted through the pines to the bottom, went back up to a wallow I saw on the opposite side of the canyon.



At 5:30pm I said ok- Iím done, time to go back down the mountain to my truck.

What do I see? A dozen plus cows and a bull 100 yards from my parked truck!



To add insult to injury, as Iím coming down as fast as I can, they continue down- passing less than 50 yards from the truck.



Iím already excited about the 2019 elk season- God willing, Iíll be a MT resident.

Our archery season was frustrating. Warm and dry with little bugling. we do get to rifle hunt though until Nov 14 if we can get into the area.

Elk camp was on our 1 acre lot within the National Forest, small one section block of private land divided into 1 acre lots. We drove right in.

Spouse found a great bull someone had arrowed and not recovered. GW met us and wrote up an interstate game tag and we were able to bring the head out. It was a bull we were working one morning when other hunters busted the set. He was found and then we went back one week later to retrieve the head.

We'll be back up next few weekends, til we have some mule deer hunters coming up Oct 24 for a private land hunt. It is a wintering area so with snow elk move down into it. Nov will be interesting if we can get in.

Nice harvests guys!! We may to try and fill some additional cow tags till the bulls move down.

Finally put up all my gear. Just couldn’t force myself to do it until this past weekend. Now the process of planning next years’ pursuit. Will be a new horizon as my hunting partner has hung up his bugle with family obligations, so will be hoping to hook up with someone else as dedicated (read addicted) to chasing elk with bow in Southern Colorado! Booked PTO already for September 19th through the 29th!!!

The spouse is pretty certain it was the bull they were waiting out a shot on when some other guys heard the bugling and moved in cow calling. Can't be 100% certain but whale's tail and point tips match what was seen.
It was found dead within 1/2 mile of the encounter and along the route they were traveling almost every morning and evening.
Posted a pic of this bull I took Saturday morning lower down in the same area in my Wyoming elk thread. Not near the same caliber of bull but I'm happy with him.

Some great later season bulls should be posting up soon I'm betting. Good luck all .

Starting to get excited as we will be headed to CO in a little over a week for a cow elk hunt. Sounds like a little snow has fallen in the area weíre hunting. Been working out, although I should have started way earlier, and getting gear in order.

My niece is visiting Colorado, and sent this picture from her hotel room to Uncle Bill.

I wonder if the Chevy pickup is loaded for elk hunting?

Wow, you ain't kidding on those fronts. Congrats to him on a great bull.

Cold and snow flurries all week up here, bring your warm stuff guys.
We had to pull camp due to weather expected in the mountains.
Travel safe you all, the elk will be waiting .

Hey guys, got some questions maybe some of yíall can help me with. Me and a buddy are in the beginning planning stages of a DIY elk hunt in CO in 2 years or so. Weíve been looking at unit maps and such by the USGS and just trying to narrow down a search. Anyone have any tips on how to narrow down that unit search a little or resources to check out?

Spouse's 5 pt taken Saturday morning. Letting them age a bit then next weekend we have 2 antelope and 2 elk to process.
The elk in our area are moving down to winter range now.
We got lucky on both bulls, easy pack outs right downhill to the truck.
