How long Do you guys think you should look for a crippled elk. My wife drew a non-resident late elk tag on the Beaver this year. We were after this 390bull that it seems like every body in town knew about. We seen the elk was watching it when one of the locals crippled it, he had two guys with him plus two spotters using radios.They spent two hours looking for it and then continued to hunt. Every where we went we found some of their people out looking for elk, is this that common there, or did we just run into some bad apples. The comment was also made that we will pick up the horns later. WTF.
