Drew a 23 tag this year for the Gila and hunted with Michael De La O of Gila and Apache outfitters, this was my 4th time hunting with them and I've killed 2 bulls, missed a 350 bull with a ML at 400yds and killed 1 Mule Deer. We had 8 hunters in camp and 4 out of 8 killed with everyone having chances at pretty good bulls, several guys passed on low 300" bulls early on then couldnt find any later in the hunt. We glassed around 23 bulls before finding 1 in the 330" or bigger range, this 1 had his main beam busted of 12" in the back on 1 side but I couldnt pass on an old mature bull.......more story to come.

To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

Thanks everyone it's been one hell of a year, only bad side was when me and the wife were on the way her 8 month old german shepherd puppy got out of the backyard somehow and got run over so that put a damper on the way their but loved having my wife tag along the 1st 2 days of the hunt, wish she would have been their for the kill on day 4. Looking forward to starting to put her and my oldest son in the draw.

I hunt Colorado every year. I found a unit that produces quality elk yr after yr. I have killed 5 bulls in 6 yrs of hunting this unit. The year I didnít kill an elk was because I missed. My hunting party has faded and am always looking for people to join our group. Itís archery over the counter , if anyone once to see good bulls and wanna go next yr let me know
