On 8/28/21 I flew to Colorado to help Forest and Kelly with the first two weeks of their Outfitting business and do a little hunting myself. Camps are set up in two Colorado units. One unit is over the counter and the other a draw unit (1 to 2 points).

After the first two weeks Forest and Kelly have had 13 Elk hunters between drop camps and guided hunts. 4 Bulls have been killed and one wounded, not retrieved. Two of the bulls were killed in each unit.

Many of the hunters are Bowsite guys so they may add to this post.

Yesterday Forest guided a hunter in the OTC unit to his first ever archery bull that I green scored at 333 7/8” gross and 321” net. (Pic attached)

During the first week Clay from Mississippi got his first archery bull doing a guided hunt in the OTC unit. A nice 5x5. Had the pleasure of helping cut up his bull with his buddy Jason.

First three days of season rain then blue bird days since then. Hunting at 10,700’. Temps were 75 degrees during the day and around 30 degrees at night. Aspens are changing color right now. Weather changes would help the hunting.

Awesome pics! Bummed I'm not chasing elk this year, but seeing others chasing big bulls helps ease the pain a little!

Purple Heart Recipient Crystal.
Many of you will remember Crystal from an elk we all did in 2018. She is an Iraq war vet, Purple Heart Recipient and darn good bow hunter. Forest and Kelly had her join us for the second hunt. God bless our Warriors….

Bowsiters Aaron on the left and billyD on the right. These two guys had deer tags and brought a tremendous upbeat spirit to the camp. The Forest and Kelly hunt package is way more than the hunt. We all try to have a great hunting/social experience with like minded folks.

They are talking about bringing their sons for a future hunt and if they do I hope I can be there too. Thx guys.

PS: They each had the bow back on nice bucks but no shot.

Treeline: The fishing in the OTC unit is fantastic. Cutthroats, brook trout, rainbows. Catch fish until you’re bored.

Great stuff Charlie & thanks again for your personal contributions to the many fond memories made. Just an awesome hunting experience all around - blessed to have crossed paths with you/Forest/Kelly/Colton/Crystal/Triston/Brooke as well as some fine members of our Bowsite community. Congrats to Keith on a harvesting a dandy, mature bull - Forest is indeed every bit the terrific guide/hunter as he is an individual. Physically, back in-the-office now, yet mentally very much still in the backcountry with you all. Take good care and best of luck to the upcoming hunters.

The friends made and general camp interaction is the intangible for any Mtn hunt. We sure have some amazing Bowsite guys.
