I live in Texas but have become enamored with hunting out West. Specifically with hunting Elk but I would like to hunt antelope, bear, and moose hunting in the future. I went hunting last year on a solo trip in Colorado Unit 74. I plan on going hunting every year for Elk mixed in with a Spring bear hunt as often as I can.
I am open to Archery hunt but more inclined this present season to hunt 2nd rifle season OTC in Colorado. I have previous engagements the month of September this year, but definitely want to try and Archery elk hunt in the future. I am open to any unit and any state.
As of now, my plans are to hunt Colorado OTC 2nd rifle season. I haven't picked a unit, but would like to get a Mule deer tag if possible. I am not limited to units where I can draw a mule deer tag. My main goal is to get an Elk on the ground and in the freezer.
Also, I am not a trophy hunter, sure I like to kill big bucks and bulls, but I hunt to eat. I enjoy the connection to the land and challenges that hunting the West offers.
