How to pull off an out-of-state backpack hunt on a budget - posted 1 month ago

Food for thought. Once you have the gear. Go for a antlerless tag, make your own jerky from last years kill, split up the cost in gas with a couple of guys. Don't stay in a hotel, take shifts driving, pack sandwich meat for the road. Process your own meat. Over the last 4 years I've got elk hunting in Colorado from MS and my hunting party which has consisted between 2 and 3 guys has connected on 4 cow elk. Plenty of meat for the freezers, including tag I can go elk hunting for 6 days in the backcountry for around $800.00 with really nice gear.

Get a good sleeping bag, pad, and boots. use your deer hunting rifle - i shoot a 6.5 creedmoor with no issues. and enjoy the great outdoors!!

We ended up spending 5 days in the woods. 3 Scouting and 2 hunting. We went 2/3 on 2 cow elk in the 4th season. It was a great hunt just had to work hard to find them, 3 miles from the trailhead. Beautiful country!

I'm hunting unit 70 this year. Only my second elk hunt ever. Me and two other new elk hunters. Looking forward to getting in there and learning. Any tips for this unit would be much appreciated. Hunted unit 54 last year, outside Gunnison. Saw a few cows and one bull.

Any go hunt insiders know what the cow elk success rates are for the fourth season? I know that had left over tags and for a non-resident from MS with no preference points and never having killed an elk. I am wondering if this is a better option than hunting Unit 54 second season for cow elk last year.

I hunted 2nd season 54 for cows last year in the west elks. Didn't get much opportunity. Thanks for your help Jeff M.
