The Deer and Bear pics are front range foothills where I hunt. The Elk pics are on a ranch just outside of Castle Rock, CO a couple of miles from where I live. As a matter of fact, an Elk was just hit and killed by a car crossing I-25 this morning.

I hate to see elk hit by cars, just seems like such a waste. I can't imagine what that did to rush hour this morning! I know CO does a great job with fences and signage, but I still hated seeing them on the side of the road. Thanks again for sharing!

Really makes me miss that place. Every one that visited me while living out there got a trip to Estes Park.

As much as I love going to MN to fish for fall Muskies, Grouse and Woodcock and Duck hunting, it's hard to beat fall Big Game hunting in Colorado. I have a pretty diverse season ahead as I get to hunt eastern plains deer, for whitetail, Bear, Pronghorn, Elk and Mule Deer (Leftover).

    • Well this warm winter should help out this coming year pretty well.
    • Well, today was both awesome and extremely disappointing. We hadn't been hunting my pintail, wigeon and mottled duck spot because I had heard it got beat up pretty bad over the weekend and I wanted to let it rest for a few days & build some birds back up. Got all set up & had enough pintails work to make it interesting, but the wigeon were pretty much a no-show. The majority of the pins (a couple thousand!) landed to the west about 1/2 mile away in an area I've never seen birds work. Buddy shot one, and we had a flock of 8 buzz us while we were picking dekes (as they always do). On the plus side, we were only 1 bird short of our pintail limit (2 hens didn't make the pic) and 2 of them shot their first pintail. One guy that has been hunting for 25 years shot 2 gorgeous pins that are wall bound, the other guy that shot his firsts got a drake and a hen. All had sprigs but some were pulled before the pic to save for mounting as we didn't want them to get broken during transport. Also not pictured are 2 drake shovelers and a drake and hen red. All in all a slow day but my buds were ecstatic. Tomorrow, we head to a lake that I've never hunted but has had a lot of cinnamon teal (as well as bwt, gwt, wigeon, gads, fulvous and whistling ducks, pins and mallards) shot out of it this year. Wish us luck!!
