Heading out on Friday! 54 years young and this is my Christmas Day! It is all I think about.

Leaving Tuesday and after a 6 hour drive and a couple hours packing in, we should be in camp by 1:30-2:00 that afternoon. Just enough time to filter water for camp, get everything ready for opening day and do a little scouting and glassing. We had a 4 point bull walk through camp a few years ago while my son and buddy were eating lunch and waiting for me to get back with my bull's head. I have dreams about shooting an elk from my tent.

A week from today. Gonna drive solo for 14 hours overnight. Not looking forward to that part. May have to pull over and sleep in the backseat at some point.

Good luck this year Jordan! I'm rooting for you. I expect a BIG thread with LOTS of pics when you kill a bull this year.

I leave this Saturday for the entire season, or however long it takes to kill a 350"-plus monster.

Good luck, Jordan. Shoot straight and bring home some meat!

I am practicing hard to make Glunts' horn shot. Looks epic.

Bake....if you still have my digits......don't hesitate to call for anything. If I can, I will.

Matt.......I predict 370" for you brother. Smack it down!

Thanks to all for the well wishes. Given all that 2020 has thrown at us it just MIGHT be my year to break a 13 year streak of tag soup.......but don't hold your breath! LOL No matter what I am gonna have the time of my life.

Good luck Jordan! It’s gotta be your year sometime. Looking forward to a hunt recap.

Hitting the road Friday evening, arriving in Colorado Saturday evening and then packing in on Monday, scouting on Tuesday and starting the hunt on Wednesday.

So pumped, I'm going with a brother in law and my nephew (his son). First elk hunt for the 15 year old nephew, 2nd elk hunt for my brother in law.

We are going to have a blast that's for sure. :)

Same game plan as Bake. Leave soon as my son gets off Monday evening. Drive 14+ hours. Get our tags Tuesday, then set up main camp around 2-3. Spike in and set up before sunset. Hope I can sleep before the excitement starts Wednesday.

Prayers for everyone traveling. Be safe. Hunt hard, have fun.

About 10% of the useable ground is still open in my unit. The rest is closed due to fire. Decided to keep our tags and see what happens. Just heading up the first weekend to see whats going on. Could be packed with everyone crammed in a small area, could be empty because everyone changed plans when it closed, who knows.
