goose -- I enjoy the updates. But, for the love of all that is holy, go enjoy your hunt and get off your damned phone!!

That... but also when it's dark or mid day and you are at camp - send updates AND pics of elk.

Thanks!

Down time PBH!!

First morning, we had about 5-6 bulls around us in the area bugling. Chased one that ended up being 320-330.

Went after the other ones but, they shut down before we got to them.

They are bugling decent but, it’s still early in the rut. It seems like they are teetering on the edge of going nuts.

Things are looking good. Just need the right scenario

Update: we did 9 miles round trip this morning, we got into a hot bull that came into 18 yards in real thick stuff! No shot! And he winded us and bolted! He was about a 340” 6x7

It’s been a little quiet! Not going like they should yet. We’re supposed to get a little weather over the next couple days. That should flip the switch!

I’m having a hard time logging in on here with my phone so, updates may not come as frequently..

Update: bugling starting to pick up a bit, glassed up a 350 bull with cows. Got on him quick. Watched him push his cows for 2 hours and then they bedded up. We had a solid plan to kill him and he would have been easy to call in because he was being very territorial. Made our move and deer busted us half way through the move and the noise pushed those elk deeper in the canyon. More bulls bugling down in deep and the 350 was letting everyone know that he was the boss. We backed out and are confident they will come back up top to feed tonight! Got a good plan for tonight.

I’ll keep updating as long and my abilities to access the UWN is available.

Got in on him tonight! I had only 1 shot through a little gap. I could only range a tree I thought he was standing by. Turns out the tree was farther than where I thought he was standing. I threaded the needle perfectly but, shot over his back.

He was a solid 350” bull. Perfectly symmetrical all the way around, gorgeous bull.

Ouch! Sounds like fun though!
