Sorry we’re late this morning. I asked Lori to write the blog but she must be too busy. I hunted this morning and danced with a couple bulls for 2 hours. I was on top of a mountain bugling (talking) with a couple elk from 6:30 am to 8:30 or so but couldn’t get him out of the trees. After an hour and all the talking back and forth, we decided to head into the trees and try to find him. After a few hundred yards I could not only hear the bull but smell him too. This too went on for another hour and I had him within 30 yards or so but couldn’t get a shot on him. Then the wind messed with us and gave us away and it was over. That’s why they call it hunting but as I said the other day, the thrill of the hunt or chase is the most exhilarating part of hunting. Sometimes the hunter wins and sometimes the elk wins. So far it’s elk 3, me zero.
I’ll hunt again tonight and probably tomorrow morning before heading home. I just had breakfast and was wondering why the eggs were so damn good. I asked Vicky what she cooked them in thinking it was butter but it was bacon grease! No wonder, right?
So time to watch some football and rest up for tonight’s hunt. Have a great day, GB.
