You only get one easy elk in a lifetime. Enjoy it!

He's just the right size to make good eating!

Thanks for all the comments, guys. It really was easy on me, so much so, that I grabbed another Plains tag yesterday. I figure with 3 whole months left in the season, I might as well as I could very well run acrost another. The neighbor seen 5 other, bigger bulls east of me about 5 miles across the interstate and there is a good chance that they come onto the Bijou here looking for water.

That said, my 'real' elk hunt starts Saturday. And I expect it to be much more 'strenuous'..... Don't know if I'm ready, but figure to see just what I can do this year, after my valve job open heart surgery in March.

Thanks again. Don

After packing out 3 bulls in two weeks (one mine, two other buddy's), I don't know if I have any want to shoot another cow.

Would've paid damn good money for a tractor last night, that's for sure!

Good luck!

One item you never see on any Guide/Outfitter's "Gear List" is:

"Front-end Loader"

Yet, given the opportunity, nobody passes up using same........
