Re: Elk comes CLOSE!

I loved that video, it brought back the following memory so vividly that I was holding my breath as I watched the video.

I had a bull do almost the same thing in Arizona in 1997, I was facing toward him a little more and the bill of my hat hid my eyes. He stood there for a LONG time (just like in the video), he was only 10" from the tip of my arrow and his breath was visible all the way to my bow. I was kneeling down with the bow resting on the ground.

I didn't get the bull, but that is one of my finest hunting memories. I still don't know how big he was, he had brow times about 12" long, The way I had my head tilted to hide my glasses/eyes, I could only see his brow times and legs! !What a rush!
If some is good and more is better, then too much is just right.

My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives

WOW That is freaking awesome. The question I must ask, (I think I already know the answer) :-( Did you manage to get a shot off, and did you make it. I bet he could hear your heart beating. Did you even know he was comming or did he sneak up on you and totally suprise you?
