You are going to either love it - or hate it lol. Albeit I think you will love it.

Yes I put in optics and fitness twice. I should have put boots in twice. Sore feet are a motherfucker.


Already have the range finder
Selling a 107UR picking up a 300WM and hopefully going to toss an 800 or so scope on it

What would be a good pack to pack out a harvested elk?

We've got some badass elk around these parts. You could also go to Alaska or Maine.
Why even give Colorado the satisfaction of limited capacity magazines?
Don't spend your money in Colorado for elk. If you want to smoke some weed then Colorado is the place to go! What is it about being stoned and hunting that just don't sound good?
Stoners can't have guns. Silly wabbit!

I hunted the north west corner years ago.

You better have a game plan if you shoot something far off a road.

Used to hunt more mule deer .

Like others said better do some home work .
Maybe do a deer hunt the first year and learn the areas.

And start getting in shape now.

Not true. Many tags can be drawn with zero preference points, and there are always over the counter (OTC) bull tags available. The OTC tags aren't in the prime units, but they are available and can be bought at any WalMart or any other location that sells licenses.

BTW, I hunted in Colorado for 15 years when I lived there. I have yet to get a nice bull, but I did get a decent mulie several years back. I shot this one just outside of Rangely in the NW part of the state in GMU 21.

Iím sort of leaning towards going on a mulie hunt first in a GMU that I want to elk hunt to get andnidea of the land and an idea about the elk

He was bedded down with four does and he wasn't in a real big hurry to move once he saw me. Big mistake!

For some reason, the mulies around there don't have nice eye guards, or they are missing one (like mine was). I was REAL happy to get this one! Even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then!

I have hunted the Idaho Panhandle units a few times for elk with the bow. The over the counter bull tag is $575 for an out of state hunter. I always saw elk and deer. It is definitely a physically demanding hunt though. Lots of hiking up steep inclines but it is always alot of fun.
