Good things come to those that wait
or tell your partner what youíre shooting at.
Just last month (October) my buddy and I were hunting in the Kootenay's Of British Columbia.
We had a limited entry draw for 2 cow elk. The dates of the draw were for a total of 10 days but we could only go for 5 days and it was a 600-mile drive to our area.
We hunted for 4 days without seeing anything other than White Tail doe's (about 50 every day).
We had basically given up looking for elk and had decided to try and get a White Tail buck in an area we had always been successful in.
We drove at dawn to the area mentioned previously and for the whole day didnít even see a spike just doe's.
Since just getting away is reward in itself we had resolved to have a nice meal and head home in the morning.
About 10 minutes after deciding this and about 1/2 hr before dusk I noticed some movement about 300yrds from where we were sitting. I said to my buddy whatís that and grabbed the glasses.
Looking through a clearing and slightly up the side of the hill I saw a cow elk, I grabbed the rifle and my buddy grabbed his .As I was first on it I squeezed off the shot. The elk dropped immediately and my buddy said what are you shooting at as the elk he was watching launched up the hill and out of view.
We tried to spot the other animal but to no avail.
Lesson to self.
If hunting with a partner in close proximity and time permits let him know roughly where your aiming your rifle as you may be blind to other animals in the area.
