Elk Running Away + RTH

I spotted some elk on the other side of a ridge so now is a good time to test out my new BushHawk for hiking. Snow was very, very crunchy so I knew with the noise from the snow and the wind was wrong the only chance I was going to get would be to try and stop them when I spot them from the top of the ridge. The BushHawk did just fine riding on its rifle sling. When I got to the top of the ridge I raised it up and fired off a few then I used my cow call and it didn't work so I tried a calf call and a mothers instinct took over and the lady's stopped to look.

Here they are running away.



If you notice the young bull did not stop but the mothers did.




RTH -With/Without wire.

I decided to play with my cloning tool.

I think I can say it is the best camera tool I own. Thanks for the kind words Rocky.
