16 days on the mountain. Passed on 5 immature bulls, and countless cows. Missed one, deflecting off a branch, ricocheted around in his rack and dropping to the ground in front of his face. Scared the crap out of him! It’s amazing how the bigger bulls have a way of stopping short, or vitals behind a tree, seeing through cover. Way too many encounters like that this year! Many good decisions followed by one bad, and it’s over...
Had about 5-6 scenarios where I needed a 30 second do over. Not nearly as many elk in the area hunted this year. Wolves howling every 2-3 days, two grizz sightings, very dry. All excuses excuses. First time in 7 years that I haven’t packed a good bull out during archery season. Humble pie! Only 340 days until next season......
