i shot my elk yesterday evening, i made a stalk on what i thought was a single spike, the general tag is a hair tag here. i got within 100 yds and could go no further, he was feeding along the edge of a clear cut. he finally got on to a big flat of tall grass and i made it within 30 yds on my hands and knees. i ranged a tree for refference, it was 55 yds, i figured the elk was within 30 yds of my location. i heard something walking my way and saw a cow pop her head up. i made a quick decision to pass on her to see what unfolds. the cow walked within 10 feet of me before realizing i was danger, she hopped broadside then bolted. she stopped at about 40 yds. i stood up and drew my bow to see where the spike was, he was 25 yds staring at me. i started walking sideways looking for a hole in the tall grass when he bolted. he stopped a long ways out, just then i realized he was next to the tree i just ranged. i settled my 50 yd pin for a quartering away shot and the arrow hit true. he ran 135 yds and stopped, he started swaying and went to take a step and crashed, not much longer he was done!!!
