    Welcome to the forum Army,
    Thanks for your service.

    I have been using Caribou Bags brand for about 4 years now.
    They donated a set "Moose Bags" for a RMEF Event I was doing and I purchased a elk quarter size at the same time they made the donation. After using them I went out of the way to purchase the larger size at our silent auction.

    I fell in love with them and I don't use any other bags.

    Good luck with that hunt.
    Please come back with pictures!

    Would be great to get some on the ground scouting in before the hunt but the distance and work schedule won't accomodate it.

    Will be relying on our research for narrowing down GMUs combined with input from my neighbor who grew up in Durango. His parents still live there and normally conduct a family elk hunt every year during the rifle season. He's a wealth of knowledge and already a big help.

    Maps and Google Earth will do the rest until we can actually hit the trails.

    Appreciate the input thus far. Will definitely pick up some TAG bags. There base model is cheaper than the Carnivore II, has more bags, but doesn't appear to come with a tarp, which is not that big of a deal to me.

    Had a chance to walk some trails during 4th of July weekend and adjusted work schedule will allow a 3 day scouting trip the weekend prior to opening day. Beautiful country in the San Juans. If I can't find elk during the first two days, then I'll move over to an adjacent unit just to extend options.

    Conditions will change a lot as the monsoon season is in full swing now. We got 3/4" of rain here on the 4th. Been really hot too. Was up in the high country in 711 yesterday and saw a few elk and lots of deer. I will be doing a little looking between now and M/L opening in Sept.
