I am not an elk hunter. That said, I found this CA Tule bull bedded down by a creek. I got within 30 yards of him before he saw me, then he jumped up, let me take his picture, and then took off. Really cool to find.
Opening day Grizzly Island bull. We made a1 mile stalk to within150 yards of this bedded bull and waited 45 minutes for him to rise. he had 5 cows with him and 5 satellite bulls close by. He weighed 625 lbs. at taxidermist, haven't had him scored yet.
