Haven't done much archery hunting when the smoke is out. What's all your opinions about how it affect the game. Do you need to still worry about scent protection as much? Is stalking easier?

Noise and Smell. The way I understand it animals are able to single out scents. The smoke can't hurt for cover scent, but I'm don't think it will help either, S*** still smells like S*** when the aerosol can is sprayed. One thing I can't speak to but maybe someone else can, would be the question of does heavy heavy smoke and very poor air quality effect their sinus cavity... I know it had a bad affect on mine...

not sure if i was driving through Utah or Wyoming because its all kind of a blur but I took the cruise control off 93 and made the ol lady wake up and click a pic of about the only thing that can get your heart pumping on a drive to Indiana other than a simi cutting you off. Score? 388 5/8😉

Great buck ol'wyatt!

I wasn't expecting to get an elk this year as I've been spending most of my hunting time trying to help my boys in their first year of archery. Happy to have this one in the freezer and able to enjoy the rest of the season with the boys.

So no one has camouflage on, am I doing something wrong or did everyone get cleaned up for the photo shoot?

I've got camo on. Family was close by so I went and got them to be involved and help me load it out whole. First time I've gotten one out whole since I was 13. Obviously we weren't 10 miles into the backcountry for this one.

Finally sealed the deal. Yup it's a smaller buck but can't eat the horns and after passing so many last year and eating tag soup it would not be the case this year. I passed on a smaller buck than this earlier in the season but I said to myself this year any legal buck, nah wait for a fork or better. I have been working out of town traveling so time is not on my side for hunting. I missed a nice 3x3 twice opening day, excitement. Actually missed this buck two hours earlier giving him a hair cut across the top of his back, came back to the area and not 100 yards from where I had him earlier he was bedded. Stalked in and sealed the deal. Some great animals on here this year good job everyone it's been tough very dry and really smokey.

Thumbs up , Bull down.
Was in the right place at the right time last weekend and will take it. The level 3 evacuation almost cost me the straps and loin at home this week. Huge shout out to our troopers for giving me a few minutes to run up the hill once the power got cut.

Smart to take the buck, Luv2! Your time in the woods is the real trophy and the meat is the most important part anyways.

Haslebacher, great work! Those 4 pointers are the perfect balance between tenderness and quantity of meat! Did you call him in or did you sneak in the herd?

To the rest of us who are hoping to fill tags - Do your rain dance!

My turn

Lucky #13 on the 13th. Since the season started, we sold a house, bought a house, moved (well, all our crap is still stacked around the new place, covered in ash) and then the woods shut down. I thought my season was done. I had a friend offer a small piece of property that “sometimes has elk”, and my wife said to take a break from the house and go hunt. Sat off to the side of a good looking trail and did two cow calls, and 5 minutes later this guy came strolling along. Pass through, arrow stuck in a tree and he fell 8 yards from it. Meat in the freezer, not a year to be picky! Good luck to everyone still hunting.

Hey winter, I was able to sneak in front of the herd as they were traveling. Watched the cows go by and he came in tow a few seconds later. Stopped him with a cow call and sent it.

So here's the deal... My wife is amazing

Long post warning: read if you wish

For months Nicole has been shooting her bow, hiking, shopping, working her tail off running business and still maintaining a social life. She cooks, she cleans, she gets the groceries, she keeps me in line... Everything

Thursday evening after work we left for elk camp. We show up in the middle of the night, sleep for a few hours and she's up before daylight ready to go. Friday morning we glass up this big bull a few miles away. I don't have any issues with how people choose to hunt. But, we prefer to spot and stock. Not because it's easiest or most effective, but it's because we like the challenge, the waiting, the running, the hustle. It also allows us to target big bulls instead of shooting the first thing that shows up to water under a stand. Again, I'm not bashing anyone who hunts different or anyone who's happy to harvest smaller animals. We do this for food and we also do this for the challenge. We hunt big bulls.

We sit and watch this bull till mid morning when he finally beds. Hike the couple miles in to get below him and had perfect timing. Just 15 minutes after we get him back in the spotting scope he stands up to feed in the evening. After discussing the best plan of action, we decided to set up on a well used game trail and give him a few irresistible cow calls. He screams at us, cow call, closer bugle, cow call and yet closer again.. he's coming! About 5 minutes later and Nicole spots him through the juniper trees 100 yards away, he's circling fast to get down wind. Time to RUN! We back out and sprint 150 yards down hill, cut in and he had us beat. I look at Nicole and tell her we have to run faster, he's still going below us. We back out, sprint full speed another 150 yards, cut in and there he is. Comes out broadside at 50 yards and twack! With a poor blood trail and less then ideal tracking conditions we backed out for the night.

Saturday morning after some time and effort we find her bull. Work him up, hang quarters and it's pack time! We took both hind quarters out to the truck, got service and called for reinforcements. Ryan and Craig didn't hesitate... "Where and when are we meeting"?

Sunday morning the crew hiked back in, loaded up the rest of the bull and our camp and had one more big push back out. I'm so thankful to have such good friends for these miserable spots elk live.

Elk hunting will push you. It's an emotional rollercoaster that any successful hunter understands. From high to low and back in seconds. From exhausted to jacked with one bugle. From jumping up and down excited to crying with a missed shot. Physically and mentally this one got to us. On the hike out Saturday, Nicole said something I don't think I've ever heard her say in over 4 years: I Can't keep going. With a mature bulls hind quarter on her back and a near vertical climb, she didn't think she could keep going. But, she did. One foot in front of the other, just keep going. It's a lesson in life, and it reminds us every year what we are made out of and what we are able to do when we keep chipping away at something. Not only did she pack that quarter to the truck that day up an 800 foot vertical rock chute, she hiked back in the next day and did it again.

On top of all that grit and determination, Nicole is donating elk meat to families in need right now. What a woman!

Come together, keep chipping away and rebuild. Elk hunting is life lessons that a school cannot teach.

Good luck to all the other hunters this fall!

-David

Great job on a beautiful bull. Lucky you were able to spot that bull so far away. Your timing on all accounts sound perfect with the smoke and all.
Congratulations on a trophy

Nice bull and nothing funner than sharing with family! (Accept watching your arrow sink in)

Lucky #13 on the 13th. Since the season started, we sold a house, bought a house, moved (well, all our crap is still stacked around the new place, covered in ash) and then the woods shut down. I thought my season was done. I had a friend offer a small piece of property that “sometimes has elk”, and my wife said to take a break from the house and go hunt. Sat off to the side of a good looking trail and did two cow calls, and 5 minutes later this guy came strolling along. Pass through, arrow stuck in a tree and he fell 8 yards from it. Meat in the freezer, not a year to be picky! Good luck to everyone still hunting.

Nice one twitch! like you mentioned in a tough year its not the time to be choose. I hope to do the same soon.

Punched my tag a while back.
2020 was one of the most action packed season I've had in a while. Had just about everything happen from screaming bulls to close calls passed bulls and even a miss. Never had a day without excitement couldn't pass up the easy pack out and let one fly on this guy.... Lol

Was planning on a blind by this wallow but ended up putting a tree stand up...great decision as the animals were around and not bothered by it at all. Missed what may have been the same bull the afternoon before but not sure as it happened very quick!
This guy bugled his way to me and after 20 minutes his cows showed...10 min after he appeared and while out of range I got to watch and listen to him...very cool and heart attack inducing!
After cows fed under me and into timber he rushed a little spike who happened by and stopped 35 yards away. After the shot he was stumbling right in front of me..he laid down and I thought it was over but after a minute he got up and stumbled forward...and died right in the middle of the wallow! Lucky I had family hunting near by to text and I was able to sit back and take in the whole thing....and try to stop shaking...lol.

Watching them die is my least favorite part of hunting. Knowing exactly where they are and that they went quick is always nice though. Good to hear they're bugling seemed like they were shutdown last weekend. Great bull!!

Long post warning: read if you wish

For months Nicole has been shooting her bow, hiking, shopping, working her tail off running business and still maintaining a social life. She cooks, she cleans, she gets the groceries, she keeps me in line... Everything

Thursday evening after work we left for elk camp. We show up in the middle of the night, sleep for a few hours and she's up before daylight ready to go. Friday morning we glass up this big bull a few miles away. I don't have any issues with how people choose to hunt. But, we prefer to spot and stock. Not because it's easiest or most effective, but it's because we like the challenge, the waiting, the running, the hustle. It also allows us to target big bulls instead of shooting the first thing that shows up to water under a stand. Again, I'm not bashing anyone who hunts different or anyone who's happy to harvest smaller animals. We do this for food and we also do this for the challenge. We hunt big bulls.

We sit and watch this bull till mid morning when he finally beds. Hike the couple miles in to get below him and had perfect timing. Just 15 minutes after we get him back in the spotting scope he stands up to feed in the evening. After discussing the best plan of action, we decided to set up on a well used game trail and give him a few irresistible cow calls. He screams at us, cow call, closer bugle, cow call and yet closer again.. he's coming! About 5 minutes later and Nicole spots him through the juniper trees 100 yards away, he's circling fast to get down wind. Time to RUN! We back out and sprint 150 yards down hill, cut in and he had us beat. I look at Nicole and tell her we have to run faster, he's still going below us. We back out, sprint full speed another 150 yards, cut in and there he is. Comes out broadside at 50 yards and twack! With a poor blood trail and less then ideal tracking conditions we backed out for the night.

Saturday morning after some time and effort we find her bull. Work him up, hang quarters and it's pack time! We took both hind quarters out to the truck, got service and called for reinforcements. Ryan and Craig didn't hesitate... "Where and when are we meeting"?

Sunday morning the crew hiked back in, loaded up the rest of the bull and our camp and had one more big push back out. I'm so thankful to have such good friends for these miserable spots elk live.

Elk hunting will push you. It's an emotional rollercoaster that any successful hunter understands. From high to low and back in seconds. From exhausted to jacked with one bugle. From jumping up and down excited to crying with a missed shot. Physically and mentally this one got to us. On the hike out Saturday, Nicole said something I don't think I've ever heard her say in over 4 years: I Can't keep going. With a mature bulls hind quarter on her back and a near vertical climb, she didn't think she could keep going. But, she did. One foot in front of the other, just keep going. It's a lesson in life, and it reminds us every year what we are made out of and what we are able to do when we keep chipping away at something. Not only did she pack that quarter to the truck that day up an 800 foot vertical rock chute, she hiked back in the next day and did it again.

On top of all that grit and determination, Nicole is donating elk meat to families in need right now. What a woman!

Come together, keep chipping away and rebuild. Elk hunting is life lessons that a school cannot teach.

Good luck to all the other hunters this fall!

-David

Well, with all the closures because of fires had me thinking my elk season was about done. I went to a friend's property to see if the bears were in there yet and when I got out saw what appeared to be fresh elk tracks. I started quietly sneaking through the thick brush cow calling occasionally when I made some noise. Just as I was stepping over a log supporting my weight with my release hand I heard a lot of cow noise, some brush crashing and a spike running right at me and stopping at 10 yards. I was screwed and he looked at me a few seconds then trotted back where he came from. I cow called a few times but he didn't come back. I inched forward a few feet and then heard a crack. I look to my left and see antler tips coming up the hill. I drew and got to one knee as he came into a slight opening. He stopped broadside at about 30 yards . I had to rise up to and learn to my left to get a tiny opening to his vitals. Good hit and he went only about 50 yards and died in the creek.
A friend actually had a picture of him on his trail camera a few days ago.

Feel extremely blessed to get a nice bull. The only thing that would have made it better is if my wife would have been there or even better if she could have got it.

Thank you for the story about your hunt. That is a dandy animal you shot.

I have seen several animals get to a low spot and then run out of power and check out in the same position you found your bull.

I had a friend call me one day after his bull had fallen into a creek when it died. It was a hot day and he was panicked that he had lost a lot of meat because it fell in the creek. I told him I will bring my knives and we will cut up your bull where it lies - getting that bull cooled quickly made for some excellent eating.

Got one.
Snuck in on this guy, 2 spikes and some cows. On my knees on gravel hiding behind grass. Came draw and slowly stood up 4 different times to see what I could see. He finally stepped out right as I was about to shoot a spike. The wind was turning and it was now or never. Put it right where you want it. Went 40 yards, died 60 ft from gravel but it still sucks trying to get a whole elk in the back of a pickup.
