Hello From Colorado
« on: April 21, 2015, 07:07:30 PM »
My name is Scott and I am from Colorado.  My occupation is a professional firefighter but I also own a  ranch were we grow horse hay. I have hunted all over Colorado, but my passion is horse packing in the wilderness.  We have seven horses, one halflinger, one paint, one quarter horse and four draft crosses. I rifle hunt mostly in the flat top wilderness for elk.  My father grew up on a large ranch in California and taught me how to hunt.  My mother grew up in Wyoming from a big hunting family as well.  My dad bought  me my first horse when i was 6 years old ( I'm 47).  My father never has been that into horses so I've had to teach myself how to pack.  I have read a lot of books and watch videos.  I enjoy leather work, i have made a dozen pack saddles and 10 or so ridding saddles.  I also have made some hybrid canvas panniers and Utah panniers.  I still have a lot to learn so that is why i have joined the site. I look forward to chatting with you.

You'll find this site very helpful and friendly. I've only been on here a couple of years, but I've learned a lot. Not everyone agrees with everyone, but I've yet to see anyone get angry with another person.

Photos are REALLY popular and usually get your point across much better than just words.

Welcome aboard! 
I guided in Colorado for a few years.  South of Pueblo and another place by ft colons.
Colorado isn't known for giant elk and more for opportunity. But from my experience if you get in the right areas there is an outstanding hunting for some dang nice animals!

Welcome from Oklahoma. My son and I have hunted in the Yampa area a couple of times. I don't know if that's your area but it's pretty country.
