Here is a nice bull bedded down I got with in a hundred yards of him and took a couple photos before I walked on. He had no idea I was there. This was in Unit 181 on public land opening morning Third season. If you look closely on the left side you'll see a huge drop tine. I believe this elk was a non typical. I never got a good look at his right side antlers.
Sorry to say that I had a Bull Tag. I passed on him cause it was a long ways back into where I was and I figured I would have another oppertunity to fill it being it was opening morning. As you would know it. I didn't and I am still kicking myself for not pulling the trigger on this one. I have always enjoyed sneaking up on animals that are bedded down. Sometimes to shoot em with just the camera.

I guess you could have taken a picture of another collored elk with the same type of collar and sampling system but I am assuming this was taken up in Rocky Mountain National Park. It sure looks like it. Sweet pictures by the way.
I had a buddy hunt CO this year and he said DOW asked hunters not to shoot collared elk on a voluntary basis. I wonder how many hunters will pass up an elk because it is collared? I know my friend didn't plan to pass on the collared elk. He's gone empty handed too long to pass on one.
