Got out into the hunt area and checked cams and took a pic of a bull last night......good times. First pic was last night.....1 mile away......300mm lens.
Damn Jordan! Some magnums on your trail cam! Hang your tag on that 7x6!
One I glassed this morning made those look like dinks. I am still a little dirty even after a shower. Unfortunately, I have no tag here but I am helping some good buds from MO hunt it the first week of season.
How bout this goofball?

That is a weird little bull. Definitely some great bulls buddy! Nice to see!
Nice photos...get us all excited for the season!!!
Several very nice bulls! Hope you get back in there again soon with a tag and get one of those bulls!
That goofball bull is sticking his tongue out cause he knows he's not legal yet. He must have read the regs.
Jordan, do your Missouri buddies know how lucky they are to have you doing all their legwork for them?
I can find 'em......just can't kill 'em. I think they are worried I will run all the elk out of the area before they get here. LOLOLOL
You gotta be getting excited Jordan!
You there on opening day this year?
Good luck, Robb
Who says Colorado doesn’t have great bulls. Nice elk for sure.
Now, go find you one and good luck doing so. God Bless men.
Great pictures! I am rooting for you this year!
I posted about weird noises previously.......had decided it might be bull moose grunts. I determined it is a bird that dive bombs then when it pulls up their feathers make the weird noise. More better than bull moose everywhere........
The noise might be a nighthawk. They make a strange whooshing sound when they dive. Some dandy elk.
These had a large white spot about 2/3's of the way towards each wingtip. Googled it...yup that nighthawk appears to be the bird.
If you see glowing red dots in your headlights in the middle of the road, same bird. Don't know why they like to sit in the road. Think they are hunting bugs when they are swooping around.
Looks like you're going to have a fun season!
I think the bird is a whippoorwill. Good looking elk !
Thx guys. I have a 1000 mm lens I plan to try out from up high glassing spot. It is a bit of a drive so not sure how soon I get to try it out but hope to get some cool long range pics while not spreading my stank around the area.
