    7 Days Until Colorado

    So as many of you guys know, Nick and I have been planning an Elk DIY hunt for about the last 8 months. I'm happy to say that we're headed out to CO on Aug. 31st. I want to share the experience with you guys because the original thread received so much response from guys who are also from the midwest, would love to do an Elk hunt, but don't know where to start.

    I'll give you a quick synapsis of what we're doing.

    7 days. Driving. 23 hours of driving (one way). We'll drive straight through, taking turns at the wheel.

    Not telling you what GMU we're in except that we'll be in CO. OTC (over the counter) tags on public land. (Approx. $600, bull/cow combo tag)

    We've spent some quality time at REI and Cabelas for the last few months, and put the finishing touches on our gear yesterday.

    I'd like to thank the members here who really pitched in and gave us some great advice.

    All in all, this is going to be a dream trip for me, and I'm really looking forward to it.

    We'll continue to update this thread as much as possible once we hit the road and when we get back.
