From Eastern Illinois here. I am wanting to head out to Colorado this fall for a archery or muzzle loader elk hunt. Have hunted whitetails for the past 25 years...but wanting to kill an elk now. I went on a solo elk hunt back in 2006. Really bad experience! Ended up breaking an arm and not even seeing an elk. If anyone is looking for an elk hunting partner...shoot me an email. LOL Actually looking for any advice anyone might have to offer up a green horn elk hunter about to embark on a solo hunt to Colorado. I look at the GMU maps and just can't seem to decide on and exact spot to head to. Got a few points saved up...but not opposed to doing and OTC either.
