    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...

    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...

    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.
