    Sure. But if you have a big sack of bear bait and a feeder in the back of your truck when you do it and you get pulled over, you're going to have a long conversation on your hands. That's all I'm...

    This feels like the kinda topic you could get 6 opinions from 5 people on. But just to throw my hat in the ring, I think it matters a heck of a lot more what other hunters are doing than what the...

    Be careful where you go, too. Half of MB/Routt goes into Colorado and there's a ton of bears here. But baiting is definitely 100% illegal here. Make sure you're not close to the border, and make sure...

    I use #4 (or sometimes #6) for just about everything. My range doesn't allow that size for clays but when I'm on public land I even use it for that. I've taken duck, turkey, grouse, and tons of...

    I have a 10mm Glock (A G20). I really enjoy it as a handgun but I find myself carrying it less and less. It's honestly just the weight and size.

    In upland game / turkey / waterfowl seasons when I...

    30-06 Browning X-Bolt, 165gr Hornady SST. Any animal bigger than a rabbit and smaller than a whale.

    I really like Colorado's approach. My son is new to hunting and determined to be an archer. That's a tougher place to start particularly when your old man (me) is not a bowhunter. Between school, me...

    I'm all for spring bear hunting too (and have some preference points burning a hole in my "account") but wouldn't that put hunters out in the field pressuring elk as much as shed hunters?

    The Silver Creek fire (Kremmling) started small and they thought they had it contained at <5,000 acres. But it jumped containment and grew to 12,000 one hot weekend. They ended up with a heck of a...

    I had one from living in CT before I moved to CO. Since I moved here I hardly ever use it. If you're on forest roads most of the time it's probably fine but up and down over mountain terrain it's...

    I don't believe SYNC supports this. SYNC isn't a magic wand - it needs the app's help to render a display. Only a few apps know anything about it. But the screen resolution on Ford's display is...

    I use the Primos Gen 3. I like that it comes with heads for both a gun rest and optic mount with a quick-change on it. And I love how easy it is to adjust - just pull the trigger, angle it how you...

    100%. Everybody's tastes are different.

    I prefer lumbar packs. The Alps Pathfinder is really nice here because it's a lumbar pack with a bow (or rifle) storage panel, but can also open to a full...

    I've scouted a ton in 20, 191 and 8 which all border 19. Looking at the map you obviously need to get well West to get into public land, looks like only 40% of it is public. If it was me, with no...

    That's basically the rule for every GMU here. Hike in farther. Get there earlier. Glass like crazy and hope the day-trip pressure pushes them back to you.

    Just be careful with your stove selection if you burn coal. It burns way hotter than wood and if you try to burn it in a wood stove it can burn out the grate (and sometimes even the stove floor).
