A good friend of mine drew the CO unit 2 Muzzy bull tag after 29 years. I plan on helping him since he hasnt hunted elk in many years. I hunted there years ago and was hoping to visit with anyone whom hunted it for elk. If anyone would be willing to share info please PM me. Thanks
Considering it took him 29 years to draw it that alone should tell you that there's very very limited 1st hand knowledge about DIY hunting elk in the unit. I would be hiring someone for the hunt.

You mean to tell me he has applied for 29 years and hasn't done any research?! If this is his once in a lifetime hunt, I'd probably go with an outfitter.

He went out scouting the last 2 years but he is not done a lot of elk hunting experience. He has read everything he can on the unit. We plan on hunting every day and just getting as many plans together as we can.

Why do people think you should hire an outfitter because a tag took 29 years to draw? If anything it’s probably easier than a normal elk hunt. Unit 2 is a slamming hunt. Go have fun. It’s a once in a lifetime tag and if he hasn’t hunted elk that much he wouldn’t tell the difference between a 330 and a 360 anyway. They aren’t that different until you put the tape on them.

I am a DIY hunter and would rather shoot a smaller bull by myself than a big one with a guide. I get more satisfaction out of the hunt. I am pretty sure I can tell the difference in 330 to 360 bulls but my friiends would be happy with either. Plus it will save us a lot of cash. I enjoy planning the hunt and researching the area. Just got a call tonight from a guy that gave me info on the area I didn't know. I enjoy helping others when I can and I have made some good friends with people I met on forums. Thanks

tell your buddy who drew the tag to drag his butt on here and other forums and engage on his own behalf? I have hunted unit 2 bulls during muzzy season (with a bow in hand).

He will get a lot more help, asking for himself, IMO.

I hope some old guy that hunted it once and will never again hunt it is willing to help you guys out. Good luck and post pics this fall. I’d go un guided as well!
