Went DIY archery hunting in Colorado. My buddy that usually goes with me broke his leg. So it was a solo trip this year. There was more hunting pressure this year and they pushed most of the elk out of the area. I hunted hard without seeing much. Finally got lucky on Wednesday evening and called this 4x5 into 33 yards. He ran 40 yards and I stopped him with a cow call. Then I watched him stagger and go down. Then the hard work began. I quartered him and made the four 1.5 mile trips back to camp with the meat.
