Default 1st season Elk

Anyone have any luck?

I spent the last three days in the woods. Had one opportunity on a bull at a full run. He was spooked by something and crashed over the ridge above me as I was traversing a bowl. He passed me at under 10 yards and never seemed to notice I was there or didn't care. I did not feel I could get a clean shot without ruining a quarter or worse gut shooting it. He ran down into deep draw where I let him rest. Came back about an hour later but he winded me and took off again. Its really impressive to see how fast they can move on the mountain.

Back to work tomorrow. Next year...
