Went last night and put a Remington 700 sps buckmaster 30-06 on layaway, hoping to do some elk hunting next year before I move out of Colorado. Anybody here hunt elk in colorado that can give me some pointers on anything to make my first season easier. Things like preparing for next year with regards to equipment and decent units would be helpfull. I used to hunt back in IL. for dear but that was 14 years ago so Im not new to hunting but its been a long time and I only bow hunted there which I plan on doin here also but not sure if it will be next year or not.
