"It's still Colorado"

My bro, son, and I, along with 2 friends, drew an easy unit so we can hunt muleys. We burned our points previously and want to hunt deer without the wait.

With that said, I set the level of expectation accordingly: fill your tags with any legal buck you see fit. But, this is still Colorado and there is always a chance at a fatty.

Long story short, we filled all 5 tags by hunting hard, even on a spike (a huge 13" my son killed). It took all week, but it was fun and we filled all of our freezers.

And as the title of this thread notes, it's still Colorado. My bro knocked down his best deer. He's a meat hunter so this was quite a treat for him. It was a big one.

I don't know how to post pics, but 3 of us hunted unit 23 3rd season with mixed results. Deer was excellent as we got 3 very nice 150 class bucks and could have shot a dozen more in the same size range. I did see 1 much bigger after I filled my tag. Elk is where we didn't do well, never saw a bull. One guy had a cow tag and filled it. At Purkey's Processing in Meeker, they told us that had been the story all season, very slow year for elk and a banner year for deer.

Nice rack on that last one. Is that Trump holding it? Can't quite see the guy's hair, but the skin color is "presidential."

We had 5 guys hunting in Meeker (Unit 12) third season. 4 for 5 on bull elk including a "click" on a bull at 300 yards for the unsuccessful hunter. 3 for 3 on buck mule deer. We hunted with an outfitter. Deer were everywhere, elk were scarce.

Now that is a successful all around hunt, Sako. Filled all deer tags, 4 of 5 bull tags with a chance at a 5th? Nice work!

P.S. We had no elk tags and seen 5 cows up high on one day only.
