2016 DIY Colorado Backcountry Elk Hunt #3

This short film series will cover my dad’s backpacking elk hunt in West Elk Wilderness during Colorado’s first rifle season.

#1: 26 hour drive from Western PA, 4.5 mile hike in.
#2: Afternoon hike, scout, glass, water, bed.
#3: Opening Day, 14.1 miles, not an elk in sight. The struggle, the work, but the mission.
