Question on Colorado Elk Hunting
#1
There on only two forums I'm active on, this one and PAFOA.

I didn't get much of a response on the other forum so I thought I'd ask here. So here's goes.

I am a member of Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. An organization for wildlife, the environment, and specifically elk. They publish a bi-monthly magazine called the Bugle. In the July/August edition, there is a full page ad taken out by the Colorado Parks and Wildlife Division (the equivalent of PA Game, fish, DCNR all in one).

The ad indicates that Colorado has left over Bull elk tags and come to Colorado to hunt elk. Colorado has left over tags for both bulls and cows every year. Just about everyone knows this who hunts elk as the herd is huge, about 240K elk.

I don't belong to other gun or hunting forums and I'm pretty sure members here belong to other forums. Has anyone read, heard, or otherwise gained knowledge of hunters boycotting Colorado because of the anti-gun legislation passed earlier this year.

The ad screams we need tourism and hunting dollars. In all the years I've received the Bugle, I've never seen a State Agency take out a full size page ad begging for hunters.

Any positive input would be greatly appreciated. My interest does not apply to any Indian Reservations or Federal Military Installations. Strictly as to whether or not hunters are by-passing Colorado State because of the new Anti-gun legislation.

Not looking if you have hunted elk before, your personal experience on elk hunting and other off topic stuff. Just if you have any knowledge of hunters by-passing Colorado in response to the Anti Gun legislation.

Now I lay me to sleep, beside my bed a Glock I keep. If I wake & find you inside, Coroner's van will be your next ride.

Our group of 6 have been hunting Co for Elk every other year for the last 20 plus years and have had great luck in the third season.

This year we where planning another hunt in Co until their new anti-gun law were enacted. We will hunt somewhere more firearm friendly.

I haven't heard in any big groups or forums that people are boycotting Colorado officially. I have heard lots of people say that they won't be hunting in Colorado due to the political climate and laws that have been allowed to pass. So I don't know about any big groups doing it, but I've heard lots of people say the exact same thing that MountainOracle said.

I used to live in Colorado. Had to move because of work. It used to be a good state to live in.

I vote with my wallet, and will no longer spend money there.
A gun rack in a pick-up is not for holding guns. Its a place for women to hold on to. Smile

Never hunted elk, but I was lucky enough to be traveling for work in CO a few months ago, and I got to try some elk. Oh Lord Jesus that was some good shit.
