    Just got back from my first trip ever to Colorado (pics)

    Just got back from my first ever hunt in Colorado and I am sure it won't be my last. Ended up harvesting a 280" 5X6 Elk (my first Elk ever) and a 175" Mule Deer. Elk was shot over a water hole at 25 yards and the Mule Deer was a spot and stalk shot at 58 yards.

    well congrats
    and I know all too well the feeling, once you go out west you end up going back again and again, a kill makes it a little sweeter, but its a great time no matter !!

    good luck now closer to home, could be a hell of a yr for you at this rate!!

    Great job! If you don't mind me asking, were you on a guided hunt or DIY? I'm looking for a guided hunt in CO next fall to show me the ropes how to elk hunt then I'm going to get into DIY the following years.
