This is about as close to a Tule Elk hunt as I will ever get. That bull looks awesome. Thanks for the updates and pics. Good Luck!

Just found a shooter 7x7. Watched him mount a cow. Terrible wind but trying to make a plan.

Day 1 in the books. Looked over a bunch of elk. I think we have 4-5 potential shooters and lots of contestants if it becomes a species hunt. Really neat animals in some pretty country. Could see some smoke from fires today but wind blowing it away. Gonna eat a steak, drink some wine and shoot the bull. Good times!!!!!

Ok, the story of ol 7. We saw the 7x7 in a big flat with 6-7 cows. Was low probability but what the heck. We tried to work around them in a creek and cut them off based on the lead cow. We hit a break in the brush and glassed the flat. No bull! He had left the cows and done a 180. We hustled down the creek the opposite direction. We set up and tried to call him in from about 300 yards. He got to 200 yards and the wind swirled. That ended ol 7 for the night. Chased one more bugling bull right at last light but never saw him. Was a great day! Now for wine and meat!

I had no idea there were different species of elk. What kind are in this picture and how many different species are there? What makes them different?

I guess it痴 kind of like all the different turkeys.

Good luck today doc

Glad to see you out and about! Ready to see the pics!

After my wife spending 7 weeks in the hospital with Placenta Previa (10 weeks total bed rest) this spring, I am ready for hunting season. And this is a great way to start
