Guys, this has been one heck of a week. Between the hot temps Thursday through Sunday last week and the weather fronts this week, it has been a wild ride! I’m here till the end of the season which is tomorrow the 13th.
Woke up this morning with freezing temps and snow on the ground from last night. My hopes as the temps drops last night was that it would get the elk talking. Well it didn’t, sitting a quakie meadow that they use.
Well, I stuck a cow at 2pm, hit her high. Left and right was perfect. Gave her an hour and started tracking.
Cow went straight down the canyon lost blood for few hundred feet and found it again. Def got in to one lung found some bright red foamy blood. Left her blood trail at about half hour to dark. Left quarter sized blood drops every 20 feet or so. I’ll be back at it in the morning.
This kinda stuff happens and it sucks. I can’t say this hunt has been easy, it was my first opportunity and I made a bad shot. I rushed it. She had us pinned then relaxed and walked behind some quakies, I drew she stepped out and continued to move. I beeped her she stopped and I hammered her.
