I use to live in cortez Colorado,,,,, great area,, and great residents,,, however once I got transferred to the UP, the " now what", never came to mind.... I still go back to elk hunt,, but now its deer, and great fishing, and grouse and woodcock, and endless fall festivals, etc,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, there is no "now what up here"

I will be going to Nebraska this year, and SW Wisconsin, etc,,,,,,, When I was in Colorado it was Nirvana ( 76 to 94), but not the same today......

If I had to live out west it would be Montana,,,,, there is not too much "now whats" there

but where I live now,,, I live like a king, taxes and property are ridiculous,,,, I am so blessed

Had muzzleloader antelope a couple weeks ago got rifle elk in a couple weeks, then relax for a couple weekends before we dig deep for the long haul, pheasant, quail, rabbit, squirrels, taking my old man for a late season cow elk, ducks, geese, coyotes! I’m hunting something every weekend until the walleyes and wipers turn on in the spring.

Elk in the freezer, pronghorn next week, could start plains muley/whitetail hunting tomorrow, then after pronghorn its girlfriend rifle elk hunt, then plains deer, then girlfriend rifle pronghorn, then either to AZ for Coues or ice fishing around home, then to Chile to huck big streamers for giant browns, home just in time for turkey season.

So, not much going on...

From: JohnMC
30-Sep-19
Lou, does the girlfriend know about the girlfriend in Chile?

I have got a CO whitetail tag I kind an looking forward to I have 5000+ ranch that I know have mulies and I hope some white tails. I think I am going to get access on another huge ranch with supposedly 20k acres in eastern CO. Also pheasant and little Okie deer.

And stare at my sheep horns some more in disbelief!

Eastern plains deer from now until year end, fly fishing in the Everglades in 2 weeks, pheasant hunting and skiing mixed in between.

Elk season is just the beginning.

Heck, I'm hunting my own elk tags until mid-December in 1 state or another, 1 any elk , 1 cow only and 1 Any Bull...…….

A break in mid-November on a Whitetail tag and helping out on a Sheep hunt (Rocky in Utah), then back after them elk

Good luck, Robb

Archery Whitetail is happening here in Wisconsin plus small game and rifle deer season. Freezer is dreadfully low.

With two Wyo cow elk fresh in the freezer I'm not real motivated for today's opening of deer season with temps still in the 80's but I am taking nephew on his first bow hunt this weekend. We got a stand set up last weekend on a fresh rub line and he found two sheds so he probably won't sleep the whole week. I am going back to Wyoming with friends later in Oct who have unfilled cow tags for a rifle hunt. I'll be packer and cook.

Ground Hunter, I grew up in the UP, have been living in Colorado for almost 20 years. There is no comparison between the two states as far as hunting goes. Colorado is as good as it gets minus the influx of Libs, but hunting starts in August and ends in January every year. It’s a hunters dream and like taking candy from a baby.

PS: gotta agree with Caz....CO (or ID or WY) are as good as it gets in the lower 48 for an outdoorsman.

Nick, I believe they are some sort of lesser Moose.

On that note my quest of a lesser moose only begins at the end of this week, man I’m pumped, it ain’t over!

Same as before elk season, opener is today for deer. And I work. Elk hunting next year when I retire. Or possibly DYI in CO later this year, if I can come up with a long weekend and a good flight. Friends are going with an outfitter there, and my wife is driving them out. I might just raid their camp... :)

Just put the final sharp touch- up on my recurve bow arrows/BH. I will be heading out to eastern Colorado with a deer tag in the pocket, next week to hang a couple of stands and then hunt on SWA for a few days. The action may be stronger in November but I am eager to go.

And then in late December, the Yard Hopper goose show starts here in Ft Collins, and in between a few river ducks.

I'll sprinkle in a little whitetails but I've got pheasants on the brain now. Will be doing a couple SD trips as well as hunting them around home. Little over two weeks until me and the pup can get after them again!
