Re: Colarado Elk Hunt
Just got back from CO Saturday. Our experience, and experience of others I have been reading on the internet, has been the elk are not high due to the grasses above the treeline effected by the drought. They are just brown. Drought was bad were I hunted. It may vary for different areas of the state.
Find water, that is key.
We worked elk in the 9-10,000ft elevation range.
Altitude sickness prevention can include starting on 600mg of Ibuprofen a few days before you leave for CO. You can also ask your doctor for a prescription for Diamox. I have vacationed out west in the past and typically get an altitude headache, really ringing. I got that the first night I was in this year as well but that was it. No other problems.
