Called several times in different locations where they went up. Thermals switched so we backed out quickly.

Man oh man was I so close tonight. We snuck up on the big herd in the brush. I started bugling and has 3 bulls bugle back at me. They were getting very close hut it was too thick to see them. I could here every groany breath they took. One was within 25 yards and we screamed at each other for over 15mins. It was relentless. But he would never step out. Finally I had to back out cause the winds were swirling.

So I backed out and the big herd was headed to the open valley. I bird dogged them running from tree to tree. Finally one of the herd bulls comes on the perimeter of his cows and is within 80yds. Im behind a cedar tree and he slowly angles toward me. I range him at 62 and he takes two steps. I draw back and he sees me and bolts for 10 yards. I draw back again and he takes off again to his cows. He never smelled me.

Then the herd went into the open valley and just milled around at dark. Epic elk hunting evening. Richie couldn't believe what we experienced. We lost count at 120 elk in the herd. Probably 15 bulls in that bunch.

There were two herd bulls tending to the cows. Biggest one is probably 340 and the one I drew back on is 310ish.

They hopefully will set I'm the hay field all night and we can hunt them in the morning.
