What a grind. 7 days, over 60 miles on foot, climbed Everest twice, well over 200 bugles from at least 20 different bull's, elk everyday, spikes broadside, 3 big bull's under 50 yds, two broadside with blocked vitals and one monster at 30 yds quartering to me with head down... :'(. And I had worked him for 7 hours and 8 miles that day...

I'm doing this solo and the bulls are hanging up on me..I call, run forward, range, clip release, wait and repeat.. first world problems I know...

I'm out of the hills for a shower, family time and re charge the batteries. Back at it Sunday afternoon..man I wish I had an elknut... :chuckle:

Good time's though...

Not always in the elk woods but what else can we do?

Good luck!

Dude those aren’t the nightmares. The nightmares are the nights you don’t hear bugles in your sleep  ;)
Lead em if they're running.

I was up there for 6 days helping two buddies out that had this tag.  I wish they would have done some scouting but we had a good time.  One of my buddies shot his first elk with a bow, it was a spike on his last day to hunt before he had to go back to work.

Best of luck to you

Heading back over shortly. Give them big bulls a couple more days then Ill be in legal elk mode..Ive had like 6 spikes in bow range, so when they become fair game Im sure they will not come into range.  :chuckle:

When your fairly close to them point your grunt tube bugle  behind you and he'll think the cow is farther away then where you are and walk past you
