Were you up near Walden?Higher than normal deer mortality in NW Colorado this year. The snow depth and hard crust has made it diffacult for the deer and elk.Talked to the Gamewarden today and she said it is warming this week and that should help.
I would think the elk have faired better,but have not heard much about them.
I was in 3/4 this past weekend and there are still a ton of deer and lope running around. Lot's of fawns too. I saw a few elk, but i was down in the low country. Most of the elk are up higher this time of year.
