    Hey guys, I dont belong to many forums so I figured I would ask here even tho this is pertaining to gun season..

    I got invited on an elk hunt in CO for 2020. It would be the 3rd gun season. I do not know much about the hunt yet other than the price is cheap and that we have a cabin to stay in. My only issue is that is prime time rut for whitetail. I would love to hunt elk in CO but Im not sure what the 3rd gun season or any of that is all about. I have been trying to plan an archery elk hunt in CO, but I have never researched anything about hunting them with a gun or any of those seasons. I am just looking for some general input.. I have points saved to hunt wyoming sometime, I have been to montana.. To me its not urgent if I go, but I do not want to pass a good opportunity either. I know its unit 441 in CO.. thats about it.

    Any general input about gun hunting elk in CO would be appreciated. Thanks!!

    House is in Illinois, me who knows,
    Third season in Colorado is a pretty good hunt. You’ll glass pockets and dark timber. You won’t see the herds of elk, you’ll be looking for single bulls. There can be a lot snow and cold. Be prepared for long sits and moving in quickly.
