First 3, then 5 cow elk walked out of the mist...then, the bull.  It was a young 5x5 and, being my 5th time elk hunting, I was just glad to finally have a shot. After constant rain since I started at 6 am I was soaked, also, my rifle was 10 feet away behind a smaller tree. With a couple cows looking my way I low crawled got my rifle and cursed. Now I know why you get a rain cover for the scope...frantically I tried using my t-shirt to clear the lenses. With a blurry sight, rain falling and I see a bull, I fired my 30-06. Got him...he’s up and hobbling, round two and he’s down.  I run the 200+ yds and he’s still moving so 1 more round and it’s over.  Being a novice at hunting, I called in the cavalry for help.  Jeff Hinson heard my shots and showed up with Bob Clark whom I had immediately called.  A Great Day for me on Majors Ranch, because I’d still be out there without Bob and Jeff’s help.

Some of us hunt other things, too! These sheds were taken from all over the east side of Silver Mountain.
