Archery Elk Hunting On my way to a vantage point, I crossed paths with a raghorn bull elk Figuring there is better in the area, I decided to pass him up hoping to find the rest of the elk herd deeper in the canyon Sure enough, as soon as I got to the vantage point, I spotted a herd with a much larger bull elk clear at the bottom of the canyon. Considering the depth of the elk’s location, and the sun being below the horizon, the rational choice was to wait until the morning. On the way out, I cam across that original rag horn, as well as anther. I figured it best to throw out a few calls just in case there was anything in there worth pursuing. Without a definite yardage, and a bigger bull spotted,I opted to pass on this opportunity. So I took off the Solvid CamStrap to get some close up footage The herd wasn’t visible first thing in the morning, but bugles echoing out of the canyon indicationed the elk were just out of sight Considering the wind direction, I made my way down the backside of the ridge to come up from below the elk herd After moving into position and several cow calls later, I decided to challenge him with a couple bugles, which got him all fired up.
