Was a tough few weeks in Montana. Lots of high Temps, lots of smoke, and lots of hunters excessive calling. Been Elk hunting since the 1990s and it gets worse every year. Folks watching way to many TV elk hunts.
I had to make some changes after the first week as the Elk went silent. Did a lot of glassing and was able to spot and stalk this one. I was glad to get him with everything going on in the mountains. Ended up shooting him at 15 yds then he dropped in 30 yds.
