ELK 09 RETURN

Postby TURBOTWIST » Thu Nov 12, 2009 12:39 pm

Hello Everyone
Back from Colorado hunt 09
This was a good season. I seen about 150 elk
I didn’t score But Mike my friend from Bay City
That’s been going there with me for the last 10
Years finely scored. We went back to where I had
Seen 4 Bulls run across the evening before .I walked
Around a draw back in about 2 miles then came thru it
On the way out , just like planned every thing explode
Out came four cows and four Bulls across his view
It took him five shots with his 30-06 to drop him
They were running full bore out of there. Maybe 275 yards.
It was about 8:15 in the morning on the third day
Close to a mile in , the fun was over an the long long
Day was spent packing dragging and working to get the
Bull out .I though for a while there I was going to have to carry Mike out also he is dietetic and was very low about to pass out.
Also my brother took a cow the second day.
We usually see the rams along this one road it
It is always a tourist trap getting photos of them.
The photos this year of them were bad. We
Had some good weather when we first got there
Each and everyday got warmer. We had to wheel chain up the trucks
To go across monarch the weather was dropping a lot of snow.
That weather sure got the hunt off to the right start. It
Would have been great if it lasted but it was shirt weather
After the third day so I started hunting higher.
It was just another good time and good friends hunt.
