Any and all advice would be appreciated. Have never been hunting in Colorado. My buddy pulled an elk tag for the first week of rifle season and he can hun in zones 71, 72, 73, and 711. He asked me to come along and I am more than happy to help any way I can. We've got maps of all 4 zones, a few spots that look good from internet scouting, and all of the gear ( I think) we could need for a 10 day trip. I am going out next week and going to hike a couple of the spots that interested us. As I've never hunted elk before anything in particular I should be looking for? What about bears/coyotes. From what I've read there are over the counter tags on a limited basis. As we are going out the first day of the season do you think there will be any available? I'm sure there are alot of other answers for questions I wouldn't think of asking... Anyone know someone in southwest colorado that sells or leases alpacas?
