									Hunt your way to glory

Call it what you will, a hobby, a passion, but hunting remains a reason to live for countless
adventure enthusiasts. For centuries now, hunters have taken pride in their ability to seek, hunt
and mount game. Getting out in the hills with one’s prized calibers is a remarkable high. People
traditionally visit places which their families have been going to for many generations during
holidays to hunt game. Many have cabins and some even lavish cottages to accommodate
themselves and take care of the prey.

An amazing way for a novice to get a firsthand experience is to visit one of the many companies
that specialize in providing everything from the right vehicle, rifles, accommodation to the best
of game. Something that’s been quite famous among hunters’ circles is elk hunting in Colorado.
Elk hunts are especially organized and the key is to go for the beast with the longest horns, as is
the case with antelope hunting.

Hunting antelopes presents a great challenge as it’s one of the fastest game animals. It requires
a lot of skill, practice and patience. Usually, antelope hunting season is declared open during late
fall. It’s the easiest for a hunter to make their presence felt to an antelope. Their sharp senses
and gentle nature along with delicious meat make every antelope a prize catch.

The most difficult part of the hunt is said to be locating the prey. As any experienced elk hunter
will tell you, it’s not the killing that presents as much of a challenge as does locating the kill.
Now, elks, for instance are herd animals who need to store up as much fat as they possibly can
in preparation for the winters and are therefore continually on the move looking for good
sources of nourishment. Add to that all the nature lovers looking for a piece of the pie and one
can well imagine the game of musical chairs that ensues. Locals and outfitters living
permanently in elk hunting country are well aware of the movement of the herds but a hunter
who spends a week or so in unfamiliar territory needs to rely on a variety of things to be able to
mount the prize they come looking for.

Apart from the things, per se, that are required for an expedition, what remains most important
is the physical conditioning of a hunter. A person may have the best rifle but you’re only
shooting blanks if not in the pink of health while going for Colorado elk hunts. Shooting big
game requires one to be strong and tough. It’s advisable to consult one’s doctor and have him
etch a workout plan for the hunter-to-be. It is widely acknowledged that visiting the countryside
lifts the spirit and acts as a balm for the soul, all the more reason to pack one’s bags and head
out of town. And what better than highly nutritious galloping prey waiting. All this and more at
