What area of Colorado?
Scouting in summer will not be the same as scouting two weeks before hunting season. Weather plays a BIG factor in where the elk are on opening day.
We DO have A LOT of elk....enjoy

not really looking for elk, just an idea, of where to go and what the area looks like..

like parks on the side of mountains,water sources,food, and where and how to get there..
don't want to show up to a spot on openig sa, and look at each other and wonder where to start..

we got a plan !

southwestern co...near durango..
