Here's all my gear before it's on the pack a few days before we head out.

Arriving at the trailhead Friday morning in the rental. Sorting all the gear before the hike in.

Finally made the 6 mile hike to camp at 13400' and drying my feet because the wouldn't stop sweating..

Opening morning scouting. Didn't get any pics of elk but we heard lots of bugling and say a nice bull at 500 yards but I didn't have time to get set up amd we saw 5 cows.. Some pics of the land we were hunting.



Found this wallow and rub just below all the bugles. Both fresh from that morning.

Saw a small 4X4 and a cow Sunday evening at 700 yards. I was sitting really high on the mountain and decided to move down a few hundred feet to get a little closer.

Monday evening been watching a bull and a cow for 2 hours at 600 yards waiting for a clear shot. Covered the barrel so they can't see the reflection.

Besides the walk didn't take long to find my bull. Shot him at 580 yards through a hole between to pines. Finally got an elk from Colorado.
