Trying something new this year. I drew an either sex tag for 4th season in unit 45. The wife and I went scouting it for the 1st time this past Saturday. We saw some very good recent and older signs of elk. I was disappointed in not finding any antler sheds but I'm really only interested in filling the freezer back up later this year. On the way out of the area I spotted a very nice cow about 50 yards ahead of me. She saw me after taking another step and bolted off to the left. Walking up to where she stood I found a newborn elk calf - it couldn't have been an hour old as it was still wet. I stayed 15 yards out and after taking a couple of pics I left the area going the opposite direction of the cow. Pretty neat. I have at least 1 more scouting trip planned - maybe 2.
