    Mike Eastman's "Elk hunting the West" was and still is my "Bible" on Elk hunting. I recommend you buy it, and absorb it.

    Good luck on your hunt.

    Backcountry Bowhunting by Cameron Hanes is also a good book, he covers elk hunting and much more.

    Brady,
    If you don't mind me asking what part of Colorado will you be hunting and where do you live? I'm heading over from Oregon. Maybe we could ride together and split the cost of fuel?

    I'm coming from Texas to unit 751. This will be my first trip out there. Where are you hunting?

    71 and 711. I wish I'd drawn a 1st season tag but I can hunt the same area and continue to learn the country. One of the things you'll read in Elk Hunting the West is hunt the same country over and over so you know it like the back of your hand. You gonna backpack it or have a base camp?
