Story: After hunting every weekend for over a month, a new portion of the hunt area opened up for my tag. On the second day of the newly opened area, I found myself right in the way of a small elk herd as they came down the same trail I was on. I heard them coming and crouched behind some small pine trees. She was the first one into the clearing and I shot and then shot again. She went down shortly after. I quartered her and began the mile and a half uphill pack. Luckily I had a couple of hunting partners to help with that hike!
