This year I will almost certainly draw Unit 61 muzzleloader elk in Colorado. With over 400 non-residents with the same number or more points as I have, it was time to get off of the point treadmill with 22 points and go elk hunting. I've been waiting for this particular year, with the later September muzzleloader season dates and a darker moon. Last fall had the late dates but a bright moon, so I held off one more year. I wanted a "sure thing" this fall, rather than seeing how the things settle this year with preference points and the next 5 year season structure.
On these once-in-a-lifetime hunts I don't mind asking for help or advice. I've been gathering intel for a few years on the unit. If you have experience with the unit, I would appreciate any advice you can offer. Of course GPS coordinates to your honey hole are always welcome We plan to arrive a week early and be there the full 9 day season. Feel free to PM me if you prefer. Thanks.
