This bull elk was shot up the North Fork, out of Cody Wyoming in 2007. He gross scores 421,
but after a deduction for his seventh tine he drops down to 401. He is 3/8
inch short on the one tine to be non typical.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
