Spend last week out in Colorado elk hunting. Started hunting Saturday and saw a few cows. Sunday about 8 inch snow. Tuesday my buddies son took his first bull a nice 5x4. Had to quarter it up and pack out. Heck of a job. Wednesday was last day my son and I was hunting so we could be back for gun opener in ky. Went over mountain at daybreak and glassed about 100 elk over on private. They started working their way up and away from me on blm land. So I hiked about a mile out a trail to get to them. By then only about 40elk was there and going over the top. Settled in on my sticks and took a 360yds shot on the bull. Had more work to do again. Deboned and packed him out. Hardest 2 days I’ve seen. Great time with my son and friends.
