2019 CO elk

I'm very fortunate to be able to hunt this piece of land for the last four years. So far I'm 100% success rate here on elk and mule deer. Bull elk is over the counter and mule deer is draw

Elk were few and far between this year and we really had to hunt hard for them. Took my nephews along this year and they were both able to kill their first elk

The evening before season opened these elk bedded down 300 yards from my bedroom window

Saw only small mule deer opening day. Second morning youngest nephew took this bull at 40 yards
Image

I killed this small bull that evening, and since we were seeing zero sign I wasn't going to pass. 360 yard shot
Image

Two more days of hunting and nothing seen except small mule deer bucks and does. I saw this guy three times over a day and finally decided to take him. I sure wish he had his other side not broken off
Image

Finally the last day my other nephew got this small bull, and The joy he expressed made the entire trip worthwhile

Laying in a bed in Craig Colorado now. Just got out of the mountains tonight. We ended up with a 5x4 bull and a cow. Missed another cow and saw a couple more sublegal bulls. We got about 2 feet of snow the first two days once we got into camp after a 12 mile ride into the mountains. Awesome trip and will post pics once I get home.

Congratulations on your groups elk gtk! Any legal bull on public land is a great bull.
