    Dolores County Colorado Hunting Accident

    If elk are colorblind what is the major hesitation to apply an orange cap or some sort of head covering? I hunt in states that require no orange and I always apply my fashionable odwc orange cap. I hate wearing that old seatbelt in my truck but I don’t see as many archery hunters complaining...

    Dolores County Colorado Hunting Accident

    Best boots for elk hunting

    I love the fit and feel of my mountain extremes but I’ve had durability issues that should not be an issue with 500$ boots. Soles peeling off and rubber rand separating from leather. I’ve really enjoyed my salewa ravens for comfort and durability. The synthetic boots last much longer if ur...
