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.
