I guess ill put my name out there aswell from Texas (San Antonio). This will be my 2nd year going up and will be going solo this year. Thinking of possibly hiring llamas or a packer since knowing there is no way I want to pack an animal out by myself. Got close last year twice but couldn't get it done, seeing an elk up close made me realize that it would be a brutal hike out by myself. Let me know if anyone would be interested in a trip for the first week to split some of the costs
How far back did you end up hiking? Never thought about renting llamas.....

The Distance wasn't bad, around 5 miles or so. Its the pack out that I am concerned with, Don't feel like possibly spending 3 days extra packing meat and camp out
If you're going back, and you're looking for a partner, I might be interested - what part of the state are you heading to (not looking for your spot just wondering in case I can make it happen).

I live in Colorado, this year is my first archery elk hunt (6th elk season overall) and I'm going back country, probably overlapping muzzleloader season if not just after.. The guys that were supposed to "be down" to go with me are flaking out. I have a spot picked out already and I'll be in there scouting this summer. If any of that sounds interesting, let me know. It would be nice to have someone to team with. At this point I'm planning for a solo hunt but company would be great.

Hey guys, I am in the same boat. I have decided I'm going back country and don't have any friends that are up for it, so I will do it solo if need be. The wife is not cool with the idea of me going it alone, but life is too short to wait around for other people! I have some experience archery elk hunting, I got my first in 2017 on a guided hunt in Oak Creek, CO.

If nothing else, it would be nice to make some connections for support on a pack out. Also seems like a lot tougher to get an elk solo since ideally you have a caller set up 50 yards or so behind. I have been doing some research and have a couple units that look good. IMG_0917 small.JPG
