On an average day, of all the Elk seen, its not uncommon that more than 50% plus are Bulls. The average Bull taken is around 320 points B&C with 100% success rate. Hunts take place on the Continental Divide where the high desert meets the foot hills of the Sierra Madres. This country is made of small pockets of aspen and wind weathered pine draws. There is a resident herd that lives here and later in the season more Elk move in to Winter. Action is around every corner. With new Bulls moving in, and the quest for dominance, the fighting never stops. The amazing sound of the Bull Elk's bugle echos through the canyons from the rut in September to early November.
