Montana Elk Hunt/The Bull
November 16, 2022
What you are about to read is good stuff and it is about one of the craziest, most unique, and challenging days of my 61-years walking this earth. Five days earlier I had left Wisconsin on a solo, public land elk and mule deer hunt. My plan was to put much of my time and energy into scouting and building a base camp, as well as a spike camp in the Gallatin National Forest in southern Montana. This column is about the first day of my hunt which was Montana's opening day.
