What a morning Pauletta and I had...We got out of the house took a drive to the coast, for what was initially going to be a hunt for shallow water sharks on the fly rod. No Dice. One area I wa wanted to fish is closed to fishing and all the other flats/bays I checked just didn't have any. I'll be back though.
Since the area is damn beautiful we decided to hit one trail head that leads to a rreally nice secluded beach. It looked like a 4-5 mile loop on the map. About 30 minutes in we could here Elk and at one pint I could see a pretty good herd about 500yards away. I figured with the wind in my favore we could get pretty close and maybe get some decent shots.
Long story short. I was able to get about 100-125 yards from them. It looked like one mature Bull and half a dozen cows.He was working hard to keep them in check too. All at once, here come two more bulls over a ridge pushing 4 or 5 more cows and a couple of Calfs. The first Bull wasn't having it and they charged one another and hooked up. This went on and off for a while and I tried to creep in closer for some tight imnages and was busted by the old gaurd bull. Luckily he wasnt in the mood to take me out.
