This was a video I made of my 2006 hunting season where I took my 12 yr old son out on his first hunt. I tried to piece together the whole season including typical camp pics. Also if you can sit through the thing, I've got a kill shot at the end. It was the last night of the hunt! Anyways, it was another head-on shot. That cow ran only 50 yds afterwards.
Video of Opening Day Elk Hunting .... you won't believe!
Nice pics......but what have you put around those stumps? Between the fighting and the fact that they are focused around them like a trough leads me to believe there has to be some sort of attractant/bait. In the first pics looks like you have some salt or something out there.....and a bunch of it.
If you're like me and use a plastic tote to store your gear in then you might want to read further. When plastic totes are manufactured they are typically shipped with the lid on. This makes the inside of the tote smell like the plastic it's made of. To remove the plastic smell from the tote I use baking soda. I open the baking soda up and leave the box in the tote with the lid on for about a month to remove the plastic smell. I tried just leaving the lid off but I was still able to smell...
