Hunted with my buddy over the weekend, outside the wilderness.
Terrible conditions! HOT, full moon, tons of traffic.
We saw a 340 type bull a long ways away. A couple of 310-320 bulls closer. Elk were bedding by 7:30.
Monday we bedded a 300 bull in a pretty easy spot to kill him. My buddy knew his son and I were leaving for work that afternoon. He was tempted since his help was leaving. He passed.
Now it's him and his 77 year old Dad.
Going back for the last 3 days of the hunt to help if he doesn't get it done by then.
I hope he gets it done soon but really looking forward to hunting the last 3 days. Should be very vocal by then.
