Good going Mike...and Dad!! Kinda new to elk hunting but I figured "How hard could it be to find such a big critter" Turns out they can apear and diapear quicker than a magican.
Archery season is closed and good ridence. Gun season opens for elk and goats in my areas on the 15th.......I need the time to regenerate from too many years and way too many "hold my beer and watch this" moments.
Hopefully I'm learning what you and your dad already know
