    Congratulations! That is very impressive for a group from out of state never having been to the area before. Obviously you did your homework and did the work after you got here.

    M/L buck and bull tags in the same unit I hunted last year. This time I'm taking two buddies who have never hunted big game.

    Points for sheep, goat, and antelope.

    I will be interested to hear your thoughts on the see all sight. I am trying to decide between that and a peep sight for this fall. I used a three dot fiber optic sight last fall which was just OK.

    I hunted part of the Holy Cross Wilderness solo in 2013 muzzleloader season. I saw elk but ended up taking a buck. I will likely be back to 45 this fall. Either the same season or 1st rifle. So...

    Thanks, MM. I appreciate it.

    I doubt many of you on this forum have the same problem. My wife was downright anti-hunting and had a hard time understanding my new found interest. She did not...

    Thanks, Pete. It was great fun. I look forward to doing it again next year.

    I definitely did some fumbling around which I won't have to repeat. I don't think I would have got any hair on the...

    I'm glad you asked. Right up until I took the shot, I was debating about it because I knew how much work I had ahead of me. I really didn't relax and feel happy until the meat was at the processor....

    Congratulations, Zach! That is gorgeous country and your photos do it justice. I trust you had a great experience. I can't wait to draw a high country bucks tag.

    My first buck (a dead animal thread)

    My first hunt (at age 39) was a solo backpacking muzzleloader trip to the Holy Cross wilderness in unit 45. I was lucky and thankful to get this buck.

    Thanks to lots of folks here for sharing...

    Good luck in CA. You are lucky to have such a wonderful tradition. What a great resting place for your father. I enjoyed looking at some of the "old hunting pics" you posted from CA.

    Yeah, it is going to be cool and wet. Probably good weather to keep the animals moving during daylight. But I wouldn't mind if it dried out a little.

    Where are you hunting this year, Colorado...

    I would be interested in hearing how you do on your early rifle hunt in 47. I'm hunting 45 which adjoins 47 to the east. I have a muzzleloader tag, which I think is the same season (9/14 - 9/22). ...

    The deer success rates are extremely low in 371 for second rifle (12 bucks for 181 hunters). I think this is because many of the deer have migrated out by that time. Eagles Nest is pretty high and...

    Sweet. Looks like I can get a cow tag for muzzleloader season in my unit.

    Is it possible to get through on the 800 number on 8/6? Or, are you better off going someplace that sells licenses?
