After 10 years I finally drew a tule elk tag (cow archery) and got after it with my son for a few days before spending the last 5 days solo.

 

I was on the cow herds everyday but with 50 sets of eyes and wide open country getting within 100 yards just meant the start of the stalk.

 

In the end, it all came together but not in they way I had planned.  She went #265 field dressed and was estimated to be about 8 years old by the biologist.  First meal was tenderloin (the heart and tongue were in the bottom of the ice chest under two other ice chests) and it is the best wild game I have eaten, totally fork tender and amazing flavor.  Plenty of steaks, carpaccio, and the like coming from this old girl soon.

I'm dumb, but knew better than to limit my range in that open stuff!
