Have not been elk hunting since 2009, and I archery hunted that year shot over the back of a brush rack 3 pt on opening morning from 5 yards, misjudged distance.

Killed one elk in my life 2006, my first year elk hunting. TC Black Diamond .50 call. 120 yards 6x6 net 260. Hunted hard for 4 days south of Forks. On the 5th day I was tired so me and my brother just drove around so I could recharge for day 6. It was off the Undi road 500 yards. Pulled the elk out whole with 500 yards of bailing wire hooked to the back of my jeep. Got real lucky. Spotted a lone cow at the edge of a swamp off the Undi road, a bit of an investigation and waiting for a shot found me a nice bull.

Breaking out the black diamond for another try this year on the west end.
