The weather has been unseasonably warm this fall making hunting very difficult for the Elk Hunters. The elk have moved out of the High Country for the most part and are now down in the valleys mostly on private land. The best opportunities are on public landS adjacent to the private parcels. Some of the bigger bulls are still hanging high in the back country where they are extremely hard to get to. That's why they are big!
The deer hunters have been more successful because the deer are still lingering in the foot hills and not just staying on private land. If you want to see some really big bucks just drive around the Town of Buena Vista and they are laying in peoples yards!
The weather is supposed to cool down for the weekend with a chance of some snow; which would help a lot! Come prepared and be ready to walk long distances in search of the elusive Wapiti.
