On day two of their hunt, these guys noticed a herd of elk feeding on a hillside two canyons away. After observing the herd for a little bit, the hunter selected a yearling cow out of the herd to shoot.
He passed on the larger cows because he knew they would have a heck of a hike to get the meat out of the woods afterwards. In any case, they settled in, and he squeezed off his shot, which resulted in an 875-yard elk kill.
After two exhausting days of searching we’re rewarded with a kill. We took the shot at about 6:30pm and we obtained again to camp simply after 11:00pm.
