  1. Don't you live & hunt in Durango?  Is that a general elk area? Or do you need to draw for 1st season bulls? I'm at sbeilg@aol.com. I just don't get on here much any more. Have no idea why.  Steve

    Congratulations Hoytshooter ! Great tracking job and sticking to the task at hand to locate blood and then the long difficult tracking job to recover your buck on the neighbor's property. Also kudos to you for calling the neighbor and asking for permission to enter his land. The 30/30 Win has taken many deer, and I hope it continues to serve you well. HH

    Found a thread that might be an eye opener for Unit 54 in the West Elk Wilderness. It is pretty disappointing for hunting results. Sure some folks score but on a general consensus... it is crowded, even in the Wilderness area. Please read through the thread and form your own opinon. http://forums.bowsite.com/tf/bgforums/thread.cfm?forum=5&threadid=393825#3927511 Now... a lot of the fellows were archery hunting, but many also rifle hunted the area in the past. Perhaps Units 53, 63, and 521 are not so crowded, but I imagine they have lots of hunters also. Respectfullly submitted. HH Richard PS scroll up to the beginning of the thread.

    pointing_ dogs: Great photos, friends and hunts. Very nice photos there. Glad you had a chance to enjoy your medical leave, and were successful on your hunts. Hope the healing & recovery goes well. HH
