Well unrelated, just got back from a 5.5 day solo archery backcountry elk hunt in Colorado. It was a good time and my intention was to learn and learn I did so it was a success as far as I see it…. I went with only an antlerless tag so I could still rifle hunt a bull in November, go figure I found the bulls and never found the cows lol but a very cool time and a good amount of game action, had 1 bull stopped at 27 yards and 12 black bears inside 15 yards… unfortunately the brush was so thick I either didn’t seen them before running off or I couldn’t make a clean shot. I’ll definitely be elk hunting moving forward … and yes my love for Sitka now extended to big game too lol
