Thanks guys! Never give up!!!! Couldn't believe all the hunters left so early in the season after not seeing any elk. Just gotta keep positive, every day is a new day and u never know what your going to run into around the next bend or clearing. I believe the reserve had been chuck full since muzzleloader season and the finally broke out mid season

Nice work, that lump could have been anyone of things causing it. Iíve worked range cattle and you should see the crap they have wrong with them. :puke:

Thanks everyone! Im on cloud 9 its been a long wait to be successful up there but ill never give up cuz ya never know! We headed off the mountain around 1pm today leaving a pristine clean camp and left the elk for the rest of the hunters and passed on our info of where the cows have been daily since Wednesday to what little cow hunters we saw. All in all the true spikes were VERY slim pickins, lots of branched bulls running around.

Congrats.  Great area.  Just wish there weren't so many hunters.  Used to hunt there for years, but had to hit the ground a few times because of all they bullets flying around.

Thanks! Ya definitely lots of competition for what little amount of true spikes there are up there. It can be a dangeous area if you are between a green dot and a group of elk or even behind the elk from a green dot. We had a partner get shot at because he was behind a group of elk that were being shot at from colockum pass...scary sh*t
