Took me longer to get this guy then normal but still got him about 3PM.
I just couldn't get close this year like normal although they didn't seem too spooked (not as many hunters in my area as there normally is). Guess I was always in the wrong spot.
Caused me to break my rule of not hunting past 300 yards. This guy was 578 per my GPS.
I also lucked out by not messing up too much meat, I was worried about that since I was trying out my future Elk loads using 150 Interbonds out of my 270 Win. Lucked out by hitting him high in the lungs, in and out without hitting any meat.
Not a record by a long shot but respectable.
