I just got back from a week out elk huntin. Ridin, hikin, spotin, and continue the cycle. I used to shoot a 75# - 64 custom longbow but since I dislocated my shoulder I have to cheat and shoot a compound bow.
Spent the first 4 days lookin through a spotin scope and seeing 15-20 legal bulls but no shooter bulls. Wednesday night I finally saw a shooter a 6x7 (320ish) 8 or so miles from the nearest trailhead. Well I got him into 32 yds on Thursday AM and missed. I go up again on Tuesday for the rest of the season. I have harvested 6 bulls over 7 years with my bow the only year I had no meat in the freezer is the year I dislocated my shoulder and could not pull a bow.
I am also wondering how many other hunters here on the buzz? Some people earn their turns I like to think I earn my burgers by hiking every one of them up a giant canyon.
