Only advise I can offer is you should prolly take someone with you who's been there before. Like myself for example...I'm only thinking of you remember, I just want you to have the best trip possible !



Seriously, get to work on cardio NOW ! Walk walk and walk some more... even with a loaded pack after you get into some type of routine.

Sounds like a great time. What state ? Outfitter's name ?

Be sure to take plenty of pictures.

GET IN SHAPE!!!!!!! When you think you are in good enough shape, that means you're about half way there!!!!!!!! I would bet that is the #1 problem guides run into, clients not being able to hike in after the elk.....Drink alot of water when you're up there too, easy to get dehydrated, it also helps get you acclimated to the elevation......And did I mention, GET IN SHAPE!!!!!!!!!!

You might make sure them new boots are well broke in also. Take some type of portable press for your bow and an extra (broke in) string. Hate to have something like a bad string ruin the whole hunt. Not many bow shops in the mountains. Have fun

there are no elk in CO send your tag back for a refund!!!!!

your outfitter should send you alist of things you need

but diffanly get in shape is the biggest thing and i don't mean just in shape elk hunting can be very tough

if your lucky enough just take an extra bow your used to shooting. i have never went with an outfitter so i have had to take everything not sure what i wouldn't need with an outfitter but i am sure your list will be much shorter than mine

Don't make it too complicated.
I carry a tool box with everything I could need for my bow if something should break, sights rest, string, a lapper bow press, peep sight extra release or tab... I can fix anything except a limb or riser breaking.

I might get more serious about taking extra precautions if its a pack in remote camp.

Lots of water for sure, chap stick, GPS, small flashlight, compass, firestarter and water proof matches, munchies,
