Summit Treestands

Stalked bugling bull to 58 yards, froze for several minutes when a cow detected my presence. Cow eventually walked off feeding. I then closed distance to 35 yards behind tree cover, drew bow, stepped out from behind tree and held for a few seconds until elk presented a quartering away profile while racking tree with antlers. Held on far leg and mid body and released. Elk ran off behind tree cover. I blew the worst ever cow call, really loud. Bull stopped looked around and stood in place for a couple of minutes with its head sticking out of cover. The bull then crashed off behind cover. I sat down for five minutes got up and went to looking for bull and found zero blood trail. I looked behind the cover and there I found the expired bull. Arrow entered high on the 12th left rib and stopped on the right elbow. Zero blood trail.
