Well it was a hard 10 days in the hills. Opening day only saw onew nice bull, but no shot was offered. Had one screaming his nuts off and then broke through the timber when it got wind of another hunter and never had a chance to even see him. The rest of the elk I saw were all cows and spikes and one spindly 4 point. Had rain, snow and wind all week and have been fighting sick since last Saturday. So I came in yesterday to get a little rest and warmth and to let the horse get a few days rest. Also have plenty of wolf tracks where I was hunting. Pads are 3 1/2 in. wide in the snow. One group of hunters we know up there saw 14 wolves chasing a cow elk. Oh well. I will head back out in a day or two after some much needed rest.
