went to encampment elk hunting over labor day.
elk arn't coming to calls and are not responding to calls.
i stalked up to one and under shot with my bow and Moseley missed a 7x7 bull over shooting him by inches.
was a blast but i cant wait tell they start rutting.
i guess thats why we bowhunt we like the challange. I just wish we were better at guessing yardages.
i got to take my bow for some real long hikes though and i'd hate to fill up the first weekend too.

Glad to hear you had a good time though and that you saw some elk. As long as you learned something from your miss then it really wasn't a total miss. I missed a big cow last Nov. in Wyoming becausae I htought she was closer then she was, and I learned from that miss. Good luck next time though.

Right on - sounds like a great trip! I saw two bulls with my bow, but couldn't close the gap...
