Just got back from New Mexico after a few days chasing Elk. It was a bitter sweet trip for us. We took a bull and a cow but the trip started great and ended with a costly break down and loosing a bull of a life time for my friend.

Our hunt started Monday morning with a herd of 150 plus elk! We did everything right until the shooting started. Shot a 360 class bull and a cow right off the bat, hunt over!!!! Not so fast....

The cow dropped in her tracks and the bull was never to be seen again. Blood trailed it over 3 miles and a day and a half to never recover it!

Ended up getting a bull but it was not the one we really wanted!

Oh... broke the truck and ended up with a 4000.00 dollar repair bill while trying to recover the bull that we did get! Gotta love Elk hunting!
