chasing elk..Just like you posted on another thread I eat elk every day and that makes up for all the pain that comes with it along with the peace and quiet in the
Teton mountains or rockies in Colorado or any other mountain range you may pick.
10-4!! I agree, I got busted up when a horse came unglued on me right before season last year. But the mountain air kept me going. The drags we did do sucked with broken ribs though.
Your right, we walked back to the truck and drove back in. I got with in 100 yards or so from him. That was nice!!. A short pull up the hill with the truck and we loaded him whole. I had him at 1000 yards, but they were moving closer so I waited for a saddle they were going to cross at 825. He crossed it and never stopped. I thought I blew it. Then a cow appeared below us at 636 yards, then a few more. I was all dialed in and ready when he came out of the trees onto that open hill side. I still don't know what turned them, probably another hunter, but it worked out well for me.
