Default LE Fish Lake

my brother's daughter has the LE fish lake muzzy tag.

It's been interesting so far. The elk start moving and making noise at about 4:30am, then by 7:00am they are heading back into the timber for the rest of the day. They come back out at about 7:00pm.

anyway, she got close yesterday afternoon.

What do you guys think? Shoot? or pass? (she passed on it for now)

I think that unless she has another bull in mind or is going for points then he would of been on the ground.

With elk you just never know when you are going to get the opportunity. Another shot may not happen for the rest of the hunt.

That was a nice bull at close range. I would have shot. Still, she has time.

Maybe the opinion is based on me knowing what LE tag soup tastes like, but I would have shot. Looked like a good-un in a makeable position.

Seriously? That was a nice bull!

At that range with a muzzy... Yeah I'd of shot. Is she holding out for an elusive 360 bull? I honestly don't mean to come across the wrong way. But I would probably find some good rub for the tag.

Just for context, she didn't pass because she's holding out for something better. She passed because she just didn't have a clear opening from her viewpoint. I can't blame her for that.

When there is no shot there is no shot.

I just presumed that she did have a chance at this bull. You never know if the one taking the video is the shooter or someone standing off to the side where the hunter has a shot but the video doesn't show that angle.

I have watched hunting shows where the guy taking the video ask the hunter why he didn't shoot, and the hunter just says that he didn't have a clear shot, or it is the other way around where the hunter needs to wait on a shot so that they can get it on camera.

You never know.

Given the opportunity, BOOM! I would have shot. That was a nice bull.

That makes sense. In the video there didn't seem to be a clear shot. If that was all she got, then I can't blame her for not pulling the trigger.
