Every year for the last 11, I've bought a Colorado eastern plains elk tag in case I happened to see one on the ranch. I see elk come thru every spring, but never during the Sept 1st to Jan 31st season. That changed today. The boss called me and said there was a bull down on the creekbottom on the north place, but he only had his pistol. I grabbed my daypack and rifle and went over towards where he last seen him. I caught him jumping the fence onto the home place. He was spooked and going pretty good and I missed my first shot. Put the next one into him as he went thru another opening in the trees. Left my stuff and headed back to grab the tractor. Sure is easier retrieving elk on the flats, than it is humping quarters over blowdown on the mountain. Didn't even work up a sweat.....

The elk are clear out in Kiowa already? Sheesh.

Seriously, quartering and boning out the rest of the meat while the bull is on the ground is easy—then a guy can just drive the pickup over and toss everything in.

Do to my partners and I losing all of our encounters with the calendar, we've switched to hunting cows in a wintering area. Over the last 2 years we've got 4 cows between us and were able to get 4 wheelers right to all of them. We don't have a tractor with a loader but at least we were able to winch them into the backs of pickups.


Sin wouldn't be so attractive if the wages were paid immediately.
