Been watching the local weather for our upcoming hunt and have been hoping for a little snow or at least some cooler temps. What type of weather do ya'll prefer when chasing elk during an early to mid Oct hunt? All my elk have been taken in either cold temps or in the snow. I have only taken 4 bulls in 3 or 4 times that many trips, but anytime the weather was too warm I just couldn't connect with a bull. For anybody on the western slope, what kind of weather do you expect for this years 1st rifle season? We will be camping at around 10,000 to 10,400 ft.
