It's warm here in South Fork, Colorado and the elk are hiding in the black timber. They are not bugling yet so it's a real search for single animals and family pairs. Bear sign is everywhere you look. Should be a great season for a black bruin. I heard of a 3x4 and a great 6x6 shot all up high on opening day. These bulls are hard to find and most of the early success will be guided hunts or locals with horses. The rut will change that soon.
