Looking for specific information on the area and herd. I am going on an archery elk hunt thru Wild Horse it will be an unguided hunt September 18 thru the 28th and I would love to make it a full success there will be 6 of us and my father-in-law and I have both never hunted elk before and never hunted in Colorado no less. I haven't been anywhere but missouri and once to Oklahoma for a hog hunt (Which was soooo cool) and I am very very very very very very very very very VERY stoked about this hunt and do not want to screw anything up. So help me out guys I have already gotten alot of tips from the elk foum and Losthwy sent me here to see if anyone had more specific info on the area I will be in.
