Some sheds I found with pretty big bases.

I had to wait until my wife could post these photos. I am not capable.

The deer skull I did not want lying around so I assisted my brother in law in making the sycamore stand, it is about 33x16 inches.

The sheds I found a number of years ago, one after I burned my CRP tall prairie grass. I find several a year but harder when I do not burn.

Went elk hunting Monday the 5th in the mountains above town. I stopped in a open area in my pickup, while I was waiting for the sun to create shooting light. As the sun was doing just that, I noticed a shape moving about 150 yards in front of me. When I put my binocs on it, the shape turned into an elk. I could tell it was a bull moving slowly, which is uncharacteristic of elk behavior as close as he was to me. I had a feeling the elk had been wounded recently. Before the elk reached the trees, it became light enough to shoot, so I exited my truck and shot 3 times, the range was a little too far for my Handi 44 mag, but I felt I had no choice. One obvious hit. The elk continued to move slowly, behavior I have never observed, so I was more convinced he had been wounded before. He entered the trees, so I decided to wait an hour before I followed him there.

When I entered the trees an hour later, I found him laying down 50 yards inside the trees, unable to rise. A 335 gr. Beartooth Bullet hardcast put an end to it. Turns out he had been wounded in the paunch, but when I opened him up, nothing smelled sour. The meat looked good.

As a precaution, I took the head to the Game and Fish office to have the lymph nodes removed and tested for chronic wasting disease. He was a 6X5.

Congrats on a job well done. I hate to think of a wounded and suffering game animal, especially a big game animal and a gutshot one at that. I suppose it's part of hunting, but all good sportsmen will do their best to avoid it.

Hope your elk turns out to be free of CWD. Let us know what the game & fish people tell you.

Went to the game and fish website on Friday, hit the CWD tab, punched in my name and birthdate to get the results. Elk was negative. Good thing, too. I'd already eaten two packages of the meat. The burger, superb on the grill. The steak, also on the grill, just a little tough. Great wild game flavor, though.
