    The only problem with terrain that is less "forgiving" is that it is the same for everybody else. Typically you can expect more hunters in that area. You still have until April 3 to make up your mind. Applications can be done online.

    You mentioned September. That would be archery, or muzzleloader. The problem is the elk are high that time of the year, and i'm not sure I can describe it as easy hunting. What's your choice of weapon?

    Definitely plenty of elk in Colorado. Also plenty of hunters. It can be done for sure. I would suggest doing your homework and even calling the Division of Wildlife to see what they think. You might also consider Idaho.
