    Duck dog

    Looking at another duck dog. Currently have an 8 year old english cocker. He is a great dog, and does real good with bringing back ducks and geese. My only issue with him is i wish he was a little bigger and a faster swimmer. He swims the same speed as a mallard, which is not good if the cripple...

    Elk gurus, teach me......

    So my question is about elk above tree line. When elk are inhabiting the areas above treeline where are they bedding. Do they bed above treeline, are they coming up from the pines below, or do they bed in the transition areas of sparse pines. Do you find elk bedding up at 13000 ft? Seems...

    colorado elk

    I should draw a muzzleloader tag for elk for the units 17 and 161 or at least those are the units I'm focusing on. I'm having a hard time deciding which unit to choose. Looking at harvest reports unit 17 has really low harvest stats and very few bulls being harvested during the muzzy season...

    beetle kill areas

    I'm hopefully going to draw a unit 6 muzzy tag for elk which will allow me to hunt the area around Walden. I was looking up by the Wyoming border area or south around the Arapaho ridge area. I know there is a great deal of beetle kill along the border and into the wilderness area, but was...

    colorado muzzy

    So I struck out in Wyoming, and am now looking at Colorado. I've got 3 points in Colorado and could probably draw a muzzy hunt. I see the muzzy hunts are in mid September which I would think is prime time. So my question is, why are the success rates so low in most of the units. I find a...

    Bear Bait stands/blinds

    How far do all you bear baiters set up from the bait. Last year we would have bears on trail cam for a couple days then hunt and we wouldn't see nothing that evening. I am assuming they were coming in from behind us. We were sitting 20 yards down wind of the bait. We talked to one guy that...

    Bear callers

    I've spent the last couple springs in Idaho baiting bears. Made lots of mistakes, but learned lots. Heading up there again this year to bait, but I have been interested in calling in a bear. I got an E caller that would work, but my question is has anyone had results blind calling or do you...

    Hey Scent Freaks

    Does anyone actually get "scent free?" The last two whitetail deer seasons (archery) I decided I am going to take every scent precaution to make myself scent free. Before every hunt I shower, use scent free deodorant, wash all my clothes in the recommended scent free laundry detergent, hang on...

    Bear Glands

    Anyone use sow in heat, bear urine, or something of the similar at their baiting stations during the bear rut. Was thinking about giving it a try. I will be hunting the first week of June which is the rut where I will be at. I do a lot of trapping coyotes and other fur bearers and know how...
