    ID me

    Just an FYI for those that aren't aware. ID me works with a lot of retailers to give Military, veterans, LEO's, and others discounts. There are so many stores that give military discounts that I wasn't aware of. It's really easy to sign up.

    Colorado hunting atlas

    Just an FYI. The Colorado hunting atlas public land overlay is not very accurate. There is a lot more private land than I thought in the area we are going. Just a caution to others to make sure you know the boundaries, if there are any in your hunting area.

    I'm curious how much my sight tape will be off going from 500 feet to 10,500 in Colorado. Does anyone have any experience with this? I'm shooting 290fps and everything is good here in Michigan. I'll probably bring a target out west and shoot a few arrows by the truck which will be around...

    How far can you hear bugles?

    Being very inexperienced and only having elk hunted a couple of times. I'm curious how far can you hear elk bugling. I'm sure the terrain has some to do with it. But can you hear them from a mile, less, more?

    Colorado 70/71 fall rain

    When we were there the first two weeks of archery in 2015 it rained every day. Is that the normal weather pattern? Trying to decide on which rain gear I want to upgrade to. Something I may need and will spend most of the time in the pack. Or something that will get used daily.
