A man who shot, killed and gutted an elk in his front yard near Chief Hosa Lodge on Saturday morning had an elk-hunting permit and violated no laws, although some neighbors were upset that he was shooting so close to nearby houses.
“It was a legal hunting area. He had the license to take an elk. Everything was on the up and up,” said Jennifer Churchill, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Division of Wildlife.
Still, some neighbors were upset.
