Dean had a 2nd rifle doe tag and a 3rd rifle bull tag.
The Outfitter, John, had a 2nd rifle doe tag and a 3rd rifler cow tag.
Opening morning Dean should have been where
John was.† He was out on an overlook and had elk
under him at first light.† 9 cows and a bull.
He could have shot a cow, but the bull never gave
him the opportunity.† Those elk went over the ridge
and right to John.† John filled his cow tag.
They might have both filled their elk tags if John
was where Dean was and Dean was where
Dean made a good shot on this doe.
John didnít fill his doe tag.
The last evening of the hunt, John and Phil took
Dean over west and set up in Elk Park for the evening.
At last light they called a good sized herd out into the
park and right in on top of Dean.† Problem was, the big
bull stayed back in the timber and all that came out was
cows, calves and a spike.
