Opening morning of 2nd rife season here in Colorado, GMU 8, about 7:45 AM I got my first big game animal, first elk, first bull. He wasn't huge, but there is meat in the freezer, and a set of antlers hanging in my garage! It was quite an adrenalin rush! He had three cows with him and they all walked by us at about 100 ft. I'm already looking forward to next year.
