    I went on a very quick scouting trip for my Colorado OTC 3rd season bull tag. I've hunted this area many years now with great success. Myself or some one in the group has taken a cow or bull every year. Some years we've taken multiple animals... But this year I decided to do a solo backpack hunt into a area we've never considered, and for good reason. No trails and it's straight up or down, basically perfect elk habitat. First day I saw a nice satellite bull by it's self. The second morning I came across a dominate bull and it's cows. Now it's a waiting game a hoping he's still in the area for third season. Here is a video I took of him, can't wait to get back up there!
