Once you hear a few bugles and get elk fever you will start hearing them in your sleep. It is a great time of year.

    Have a great hunt! I haven't hunted 71 in a few years, but I used to hunt it at the end of the season trying to catch the migration coming out of Yellowstone. Elk numbers are down from where they used to be, but there are still enough to have a good hunt. BE CAREFUL OF GRIZZLY BEARS, especially with a guide that is new to the area. Be extra careful after you have an elk on the ground. Glad you have a 338. Have fun.

    Great Bull! How did the Edge do? Bullet type and distance?

    Finally got a tape on my bull. He grossed 369 1/8. Not bad for my first elk I don't think.
