Thanks to all for the compliments.
Yes WinMag it was physically the easiest elk hunt that I've done, by far!
My last bull was at 11000 ft in the snow, 15 horse miles from the trailhead.
This was a rare opportunity only a 2 hour drive from where I live. The worse thing was unusually hot 90+ degree afternoon temps. Had to work fast to take care of the meat. Anyway didn't have to worry about any griz or wolves on this one.
Went swimming in the river the afternoon after the hunt.
