A quick pic of a herd of pronghorn ( speedgoats) just outside of Gardener Colorado yesteday. The pronghorns were going to water, not a very good pic but I'll post some better ones later

Fixing to lay down .....tomorrow is opening day for all of us. The place me and my cousin are hunting tomorrow is the high country. We will be in the quakies ( aspens) . It's not really a morning hunt but mainly an evening hunt because the elk are usually leaving up to bed in the morning. So we are going to try to tail some and maybe take a shot at one stopping to eat as they leave

On our way to the property that we hunt which is about 45 min drive to the high country on the county road we jump 1 cow and 3 yearling and they were trotting right next to the truck. I didn't even think to take a pic but it was awesome to see

We parked in the property by the gate and walking about 500 yards which is only an easement NO Hunting allowed till we get to the property boundary. We jump Elk about 100 yards from the property line and we froze still in our tracks. I could hear bulging in our property in the distance. With no cover we just stood still as the elk moved off , they were about 175 yards away. We started to advance ( wind in our face of course ) 3 cows and a bull spotted us on high hill maybe 300 or 400 yards away then they left over the sky line. We got close into our property I spotted some elk above us but they weren't spooked. I decided to leave them be and come back this afternoon. I didn't want to take a chance on blowing them out of thr as the place is LOADED up with elk. Truth be told I'm not that experienced enough to stalk hunt them especially when the elk are at a elevated position then me.

On the way out just barley out of the property line if not right on the boundary I spotted a good size cow (unspooked). So I nocked an arrow and started easing up to her. She was in a creek drinking water. I get about 30 or 40 yards she pops her head up, I freeze , she moves to get out , I pull to full draw, she's moving by now she is no longer in our property, seconds then she quartered away then behind a tree then way quartered away and further she was and further away from our property then I just tell my bow down , the shot didn't feel right plus the boundary line thing was messing with my head as I was giving specific instructions not to hunt until we were inside our line. The adrenaline was awesome my little high for this morning. My cousin took a couple of pics while this was happening I'll post in a little bit .

My cousin actually video'd me when I drew on the cow this morning but I don't see an option to upload it to this post so I took a screen shot. I was at full draw and she's about 30 yards away and there's a small creek between us and she's already in someone else's land.
Dang it

I've been try to lay down and take a nap but my mind won't rest , won't shut down , won't go into sleep mode , keep thinking about the elk , seeing them in the field , hearing the chirp calls AND the bugles in the distance. I keep thinking about this morning when I drew on the cow, the what ifs, the should haves, should have I done something different, should I taken the shot , should I have tried to call her in........I close my eyes and I see elk moving, walking like they walk....
