The extended archery elk hunt ends this weekend so this morning was my last chance at an elk this year. I started the day off hiking alone at five this morning. I was able to get where I had wanted to hunt before the sun came up so I sat down and waited for light. As soon as it started to get light I was glassing all around me. A lot of deer were out feeding as well as some moose and even a few coyotes were out trying to get warm. I saw some fresh elk tracks but were unable to locate them. Even though I was not able to get an elk I took some pictures of my morning. The great thing about hunting is there is always next year.
