you sure did. I fell for it, hook line and sinker. All that talk of being over objective and all these extra cow tags, I couldn't resist... a December elk hunt? Here, take my money!

...unfortunately the elk were no shows. 2.5 days and we never cut an elk track nor saw any on public land. Apparently it was a "shoulda been here yesterday moment" as we talked to a game warden who said, "two weeks ago there was a herd of 1,000 in here."

But it was pretty country.

That’s a bummer, I was rooting for you! Looks like you enjoyed the scenery at least.

I shot my antelope buck this year not too far from your last photo. Really neat country that looks way colder than when I was there.

Beautiful scenery, but yeah, I don't think it ever stops blowing. Probably as challenging as finding elk is getting to WY in the winter. It seems to blizzard in SD every time I try to head west...

We have had similar experiences in CO 2 of 3 years. Those late season hunts seem to be very binary - either they are there or they aren't.
