How many of you are headed out west to chase Elk? What are you doing physically to get ready? I'm headed to CO on August 28th and will be there until September 8th ill get to hunt 10 days this year(wish it was more). Going from 450 feet or elevation to 9500+ if tough. So far I've been getting up at 4am every morning and getting a 2 mile walk with a 20 lb pack. The past few days I've topped it off with a 3-4 mile jog an a hour or two of basketball. This is what I normally do every year and it usually gets me ready to roll. What about you guys?
