I got some kind of virus this past Oct. just west of Pagosa Springs Co. This happened on my first elk hunt ever. Up until then I had never seen an elk in the wild. Down in Texas they are "scares as hen's teeth". I still have only seen one elk, a 5X5, which I get to look at now every day on the wall. Here lies the problem....What do the more experienced elk hunters do now? I am totaly consumed in elk hunting, bought a 300 WSM when I already have the 7mm mag, '06, etc. I can't wait till next season. Is the only cure next Oct? By the way, anyone ever hunted with J&D Outfitters in Co. Thinking of booking this hunt so I can start packing soon.
