We had a hard time decided where to go, so we decided to return to the same place we hunted the day before. We never disturbed the 5×4, so we hoped we might get another look at him

The morning was uneventful, and we never heard a noise. In the evening, we heard some bulls bugling and tried to close the distance. Somehow we found a herd of elk before we ran into them.

As cows and a spike bull filtered past us, we patiently waited. The herd bull began growling and screaming but never erupted into a full bugle. The action lasted until it got dark, and we were never able to see him to get a shot. The timber was too thick in the area, and the number of animals made it impossible to move.
