Well gents I'm back from my elk hunt and the freezer will go empty unfortunately. Saturday was my best day. Below is a video shot on my buddy's iPhone. See if you can spot the bull. The bull had been bugling and we were on the stalk. Everything was going pretty well until the bull turned directly at us which at first we didn't know. When we figured it out we were out in the open. He still kept coming but saw something he didn't like and held up behind some trees at 35 yards. There is just nothing quite like be bugled at directly from such a close distance. When my buddies get back that are still up there I'll hopefully post another near miss encounter. That video you'll get to see the bull much more closely.

The reward is in the challenge of the chase. Sounds like a good hunt Phil.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
