Well went out today with my two cousins too see if my one cousin could fill his late cow elk tag before the end of the season and well he succeded in doing so. In the morning we thought for sure we wouldnt see any animals cause the wind was sooo strong, for example i was walking one ridgeline and i was watching tree get blown, after i seen that i got off of that ridge pretty fast.
As i was walking down from the ridge i heard 5 shots come from where my cousin and sure enough not a minute later over the radio i hear, get ahold of your dad cause we need the quad. So i get up to where he was there was a cow laying right where it was standing.He shot her right in the juguler( he was aiming for the chest but it hit a branch of some brush that was in front of her that he couldnt see and i guess he got lucky on the shot.)So another elk in the garage and more steaks and roasts for the belly.
I was standing on top of this ridge when i heard the shooting
This is the ridge i had to hike up and over to get to where the elk was(my legs are mighty stiff right now)
My cousins are on the right and thats me on the left
Good job Lethal, nice to see there will be one less tag hanging on the xmas tree this yr. Speaking of Elk i have 3 nice Elk Steaks marinating for the BBQ right now. Another tastey wild game supper......
No we werent in bob creek we hunt in 312 but where we were there is only a herd of 30 running around in there and we've harvested both our elk from that herd but the elk are definitely down from the high country. Good luck to yah tomorrow wuilly.
I almost got the bull owta one of those herds with my bow in beginning of october.It didn't work out though.Fifteen cows he had with him.Sure gets the adrenaline going listening to these guys roar!
Congrats on the cow,steaks will be taaaaaaastyyyyy!!:b
Thanks for the compliments guys. It was an awesome day to hunt(except for the wind in the morning) and its unfortunate that no one has tags left just so i can go out for another walk but i guess ill have to wait untill next year, which i already cant wait for but at least our freezers will be full untill then.
In total between the 5 guys i hunt with we managed to bag 1 moose, two elk and 11 deer so it was a good year for us and hopefully we will have just as of successful one next year.
hey lethal connection do you perhaps hunt at joey bews in 312
A word to the wise, I don't imagine the majority of Landowners would appreciate having their full name plastered on the internet especially when accompanied by the wmu that their land is in. I would suggest editing that post.
