We enjoyed a supper of tenderloin and instant potatoes last night and it was great. Now we are just trying to get my buddy a cow to tag out on. Good bit more traffic today. Sun is bright and skies are clear. Feels nice.
Keep at itYesterday evening we found a herd. Buddy got a shot off but we couldn't find blood and it got dark. We came back this morning and found blood. Trailed for 1.5 miles over the mountain then down into the next valley. Based on two of the beds, it looks like a grazing shot maybe around the brisket. Blood was pinpricks the whole way and the elk was very obviously keeping up with the herd. We are going to sit near that area for the evening and maybe come back tomorrow morning. We will almost certainly leave tomorrow though with more snow possibly coming. Don't want to get stuck up here.
