    well not much of a story for this year. focused on elk, had a hell of a bad season. spent opening weekend in my best spot lots of sign, had one bull screaming a little. found the biggest rub i have ever seem. then the storms moved in and the place caught on fire due to lighting!!!!! i spent the rest of season trying new areas. on Saturday got invited to try a new area on the coast, the morning was slow but the afternoon heated up.

    we spotted some elk in a field made some plans and went after them, it was not 10 minutes later and i had stalked to within 48 yards of a cow feeding broadside so took her. it her a little low but my broadhead took out the bottom of her heart. she ran about 50 yards stood there for a few and then fell over.

    on Sunday i went back with my friend to try to get him one and we got into a good herd of elk 3 bulls all screaming but it got dark before we could close the deal. it was still a good time.

    here is my cow, meat in the freezer is better then tag soup.

    I see. I think I'll end up in the Sadle Mtn area as usual. I haven't been hunting in about 5 years since I left back in 06 for the military..first year back home. Excited! Hope there's snow when my time comes.
