Yowza...So many happy stories.. this ain’t one of them. 2015 I had a r7 tag and was elk hunting over there during archery - getting my ass handed to me. While eating dinner and drinking a cold beer I saw a herd of antelope with a buck in it walk over the hill. After another 2 beers I thought, “screw this elk hunting, I could go get that antelope”.
Yeah, let the circus begin. When I finally put my tag on the buck after having to reshoot my entire quiver, I heard an elk bugle. It was dark by then. Likely the bull bugling was the one killed a couple weeks later by a rifle permit holder within a 1/2 mile of where I was at.
