haha would love to do a Colorado hunting trip! let me know when i can come out.

Any time - although I don't know how much longer the seasons are.

Most of the deer here are Mule Deer - slightly bigger than white tail, big ears, dunno what other differences there are. Can't go a day without seeing them, either Some from the back porch...

For some reason, our driveway is a really popular place to hang out...

Love the pics, these guys can get huge.  Would love to get a chance to take one home and hang it on the wall.

I had a large fox run by my stand last week.  Lots of nature out your way, pretty cool.  You buried in snow yet?

We've had three snows of 9"+ so far this year, but it has always melted within a few days. Still have some on the north, shady side of the house - but that's about it.

Snow on September 30th pics....

Sure I'm serious. Basecamp has cabins (and a liquor store) that a lot of hunter stay in : http://basecampco.com/site-types/cabins

The town of Black Hawk is a gambling town with lots of casinos and hotels such as Ameristar and Lodge Casino, Grand Z Casino / Hotel and The Isle Hotel /Casino. Not sure if they want a bunch of hunters traipsing through their gambling floor with rifles or not, but ya can always just enter through the garage, too.

I have an extra bedroom (two single beds) with bathroom and a private entrance if there's only one or two guys.

Black Hawk is an old gold mining town with mostly historic buildings from that era comprising the town. It's really pretty cool.

We live about 5 miles up the hill from Black Hawk in the Arapaho National Forest. I'm not sure about the hunting up here, but see hunters damn near every day and hear rifle shots all weekend long - so they're hunting something <gg>. There may be better hunting nearby - but I'm not aware of it as I'm, not much of a hunter myself. But loads of guys around here hunt elk and i could hook you up with some of them

The two of you could just crash here then if you'd like. It's a nice house, not some shit hole. Plenty of room for you.

 

Do some research and decide what animals you want to hunt and where the best places to hunt are. Might check with the Arapaho Forest Rangers for starters. There may be better places to go around here as well.... like I said, I have zero experience. And you'll need a handheld GPS for sure.
