Could not have asked for a better way to spend my Birthday in the most spectacular country I’ve ever seen. We hunted hard everyday and covered hundreds of miles of country as we searched for Elk. From our first morning we could see the massive presents of Wolves that had been introduced back in the north years ago.
The Elk population has taken a huge hit from being hunted their entire lives from Mountain Lions, Bear and Wolves. We saw plenty of Moose sign but the Elk were extremely difficult to locate! We had a Bull Bugling back at us on the second day but we didn’t get the chance to get close to him. Public land hunting is some of the toughest I’ve seen but I loved every minute being out there! Sleeping under the stars next to a campfire each night, Wolves howling near camp, catching Trout through the middle of the day and hunting hard each morning and afternoon an Elk would have only been a bonus!
Huge thank you to Kayla’s Dad Tony and Marty and Wade for showing me a great hunt and working so hard to make it happen for me! Will make it sweeter when it does happen!
