"DIY SW Colorado"

Howdy,

I am moving to Albuquerque, NM in September for 8 months of training for the Air Force. Taking an elk is high on my hunting bucket list. Seeing as I'll be so close to Colorado, I am thinking about driving up there and doing a DIY hunt in October or November. I've never been elk hunting. Right now I am looking into areas near Durango simply because I can make it there in 3.5 hours. I am looking for any and all advice on DIY hunts in SW Colorado. I will be using a rifle. Thanks in advance.

Mike

I sent a private message in response to your query.

If you like Italian restaurants, try eating at Trombino's in Albuquerque. It is north of I-40 and east of I-25.

There is a very big hot air balloon festival in Albuquerque in early October. It is worth going to see a morning ascension if you have the opportunity.

There are very, very impressive Indian ruins at Chaco Canyon about 70 miles west of Albuquerque. The last 20 miles is over dirt roads that can be hazardous when wet as they become super slick.

Mike,

If you are going through PJ University there then get with the SERE guys on base, I'm sure one of them will know something or be willing to go with you.

Other than that good luck, I'll be outside gunnison trying to do the same.

5yr CCT myself.
