The alarm blared early and with our instant coffee, msr reactor stove and Leica optics we made the two-minute walk down to the glassing lookout. What a gorgeous morning. We were quickly able to spot a bunch of different elk, including six different six-point bulls. One bull in particular really got me excited and it turned out he was really close to where we'd been scouting the evening before. You never know where these things are going to turn up. It was a long way off, but this bull was really wide with long tines, which is the combination every elk hunter is looking for.
