    AWESOME STORY!!!
    Great hunt, that is what dreams are made of. You will be thinking of ELK for a long time, and that dream will keep you pushing and maybe next year you can get him.
    That buck is awesome looking. Great buck.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I know better than to ask what unit, but when in September was your season? A friend, brother-in-law, and myself did a high country mule deer hunt in Colorado two years ago. We saw 360 inch bull elk, seven different mountain goats, and zero bucks. LOL

    I'm not one to get discouraged easily so I'm going back this year! We were hunting from September 2 through the 10th and I was curious if we were too late?

    I came back second season that year and ended up sleeping which between a little jack pine and the hillside so that I wouldn't rolldown a scree field in the dark. I can definitely attest to your story!
