View Full Version : New to Eastman's and Colorado

01-09-2013, 07:15 PM
Hello, I am new to this forum. Let me introduce myself...

I have spent a fair amount of time in an other Utah based forum. I recently moved to Grand Junction and really would like to get to know the region and find some Colorado hunting pals. Nothing beats spending days in the field with good company.

Since I am new to Colorado, I have lots of questions and not much knowledge yet. To be fair, I am very familiar with many of the Utah units and am more than willing to share what I know. I especially can help with many of the LE elk units that I have hunted or helped on hunts. Just ask...

I especially enjoy bow hunting and fly fishing, but I do and like any weapon choice...

Thank you for your time.

Welcome Elkhunter96 Being located in Grand Junction gets you close to good hunting and fishing in Northwest Colorado. I have hunted the NW corner but its been a while so I will let someone more current give their ideas, again welcome.

Thank you Cowboy. I will be sure to take you up on that. One of the deer areas I have been researching is down your way...

Glad to see you have joined the forum. Also nice to see someone that offers help instead of just asking for some. Lots of great info here. Welcome!

Thanks to all, looks like a good set of guys on here. I think it is only fair to be open and sharing with my knowledge and experiences in order to be able to ask for others to do the same...

I've lived in GJ for quite a while and hunted around here nearly every year. Been lurking on these boards for a bit, mainly hanging out on others. PM me if you want to grab lunch sometime. I need a brain to pick about UT tags. I finally have a few points to where it gives me hope I might draw a decent tag while I'm still upright.
