I'll be heading out to Colorado August 29th to the Grand Mesa National forest for my first elk hunt ever. This is something I've been dying to do for years and never could get anyone interested in going with me. Well, now it's happened. I'm going with someone who has the same desire as I do and he was successful with a guide out there last year. That was his first hunt.

This will be a diy hunt. The plan is to backpack into some tough to get to semi wilderness (non-motorized) location.

We will be there til around September 8th / 9th.

If anyone has any information/tips I would absolutely appreciate it.

Good luck and lets see some pictures on your return.

I'll be leaving just a couple days after you get back. My pile of stuff just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

It's a Katadyn. Same kind that Buzz has in his photo of equipment. They work pretty good. I got use to during turkey season.
