Default Fall Elk Bugling

I rifle hunt first season and spend a few weeks calling them in for fun in the Flat Tops in late Sept. We are pretty protective of our spot. Thus, I just prefer to post in the members section.

My hunting buddy Dan and I called in this bull on our first evening in our area. He is a beauty. We are calling him the beaded bull and hope to connect with him next week - 1st season. I got some of the best video footage yet. He came in real close. I still need to edit the footage down and post it. Here are a few screen shots.

Side story. I took the footage Friday evening. Continued down to the end of the trail near a cliff to spend the night. It was dark. I dropped my camera and it rolled off the cliff. I recovered it the next morning smashed. To my dismay the data was being recorded to the internal memory not the removable chip. Found a write up about an intern that figured out how to recovery the internal data on a similar camera to mine. I just got it back from the data recovery service today. It also had my Moab escalator footage on it. Whew!

Nice....That's an ass scratcher! Anytime a bull can scratch his own ass just by tilting his head back, you know you're looking at a quality animal.

Looking forward to seeing that video.

I'm looking to do my first elk hunt in the near future, first hunt of anything, really. Looks like you found a great spot and have been well rewarded for it!

I'm looking into a cow tag myself. Seems like most farms around here have lots of them though, so should be pretty easy. I bet the cleaning will be pretty tough, what with 4 stomachs and all.
