Brian, Jacob and I headed back down to 3-knobs today. There’s just too much sign there to ignore, and almost all of the camps have pulled out. It kind of makes me wish we were just getting here and could hunt the entire last week of the season.  Now, we just have to make the most of the three days we have left. 

  Josh headed back into the area he hunted yesterday. Once again, he got on elk and stayed in amongst them the rest of the day. When he came out tonight, there were three bulls bugling on the ridge below him.  He hunted near the valley wallow. 

  Although we didn’t have much action today, I was near elk all day. On the way in, Jacob and I jumped one off the ridge near the top of the drainage. It was close, but we never got a look at it. 

  When I was sitting, a few elk filtered down the hill but never made their way past me. I was highly disappointed. The theme continued in the evening when a few cows went by me and were mewing back and forth. I never saw them but could clearly hear them. It’s beginning to get frustrating. 

  Brian had an entire day of nothing. He didn’t hear or see anything. We hope things improve over the next few days, but it doesn’t appear that’s going to happen. We’re hoping for a miracle at this point. The hunt has been great, but the results have been horrendous.
