We know ‘confidence kills’. The more confidence you have, the better chance you have killing an elk.

So, on a scale of 1 - 10 what is your confidence level for killing an elk this year? (10 being high - 1 being low)

You first!

9. I won’t say 10 since nothing’s guaranteed, but confidence is high.

3, my unit is mostly closed. That crams us all in a small area and gives the elk a giant area that isn't on fire with no hunting, camping, atving, or hiking pressure. Plus, my main focus is getting my son an opportunity.

I need to listen to a couple motivational CDs.

10 for me. 5 if the elk don’t cooperate.

I always approach each year with the highest confidence. However, if I had to assign a number this year would be 7 or 8. If I don't kill, it wont be for lack of effort.

I’m at a solid 3. New unit. No scouting, no “inside info”. Just some e scouting, onX and spots A-D pinned on a map. Should be fun!

9 that I'll get at least one good shot opportunity at a bull in a totally new area. 5 that the opportunity will be at a bull I want to shoot.

8

Brand new area, only e-scouted, rough country, but I won't be picky.

10

For a couple reasons.

1. Im more concerned about having a good time hunting with close friends and being in the mountains. 2. I have a lot of elk meat left over from last year. 3. Im not bringing a cooler.

8 but I have went out to Colorado with that confidence level every year. It's a smooth 0 on the drive home

7- Like to think I am figuring this area out. And I won’t be too picky. Rag horns and larger, beware.

8-9 depends on weather but high either way

From: Scoot

10 confident we'll have fun! 7 confident we'll fill a tag. General tag with lower numbers right now, but we'll find elk and work our butts off.

From: elkmtngear

Any elk- 9

Big Bull- 3

From: Dale06

Going to NM, 40,000 private acres, guided, Sept 20, for five days. My confidence is 8. As someone else said, they don’t commit suicide.

I like EMG's Assessment. Especially since we are hunting together again this year.

24-Aug-20
First year I’ve had any confidence. I’m at a solid 8! Can’t wait 100% chance we’re gonna have some fun.

From: Pop-r

Mine is typically pretty high but I got my ass kicked on elk last year so I'm pretty humbled this year. I have several different tags to hopefully notch though so I'm an optimist 7 overall.

10, I have worked way to hard and way to long to allow lack of confidence to be the chink in my armor.
