In the Elk Fort
Elk hunting has many methods. One is to sit and wait. I look for areas with good fields of view, and where I can be screened from view so my inevitable movements are less visible. I found this natural blind that was just right. It had been created at the base of a massive ancient cedar tree, logged and re-logged, then the stump cut up to make cedar shingles. Here there was a pile of roots and new growth the made a nice three foot tall wall covering most of 360 degrees. Here I sat in the rain and sleet. Here I heard the shots that were on the other side of the ridge, the right side, downing an elk.
