Follow along on this short video, featuring a successful shot(s) on a spike bull elk.
Limited to general spike bull only tag.
After several days of hunting dawn2dusk, having covered several miles each day, finally graced with luck on this cold November morning.

An elk hunting tip;
Never give up, keep your confidence positive to roll out of the sleeping bag each morning, always be ready as opportunity can happen quickly in only a moment.

Looks like that pack out sucked…. Best hunts are the one where you’re within a stones throw of a road with a dead elk!

Pack out was easier than usual, for an elk. The usual being boning out and hiking back up some steep canyon.

This old logging road the elk ran across to other side then collapsed, has been closed since the late 1980's.
We had a wheelie game cart, took it out gutted/whole with many stops to rest.
Just a 2-mile roll to partner's parked SUV.
