It certainly isn't a live hunt, but hopefully this will help tide some of you over as most of us await the results of draws with the hopes of drawing elk tags.

Wow, Bowsite sure corrupts the color and integrity of these images. Oh well, here are more.

The quality is crap after going through the Bowsite upload interface, but hopefully through these photos you can relive some of those heart-thumping, adrenaline laced, bugle-filled mornings and afternoons of September here in early March.

Tim those are outstanding pics, even after they are beat up by bowsite. I've complained about the pics for a long time (not as long as some) but it sounds like it's not worth it to do the upgrades/changes required to allow for really high quality pics to be posted here. It's a bummer, but bowsite is still a great place with tons of great folks. You are uber-talented! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Tim! Tim is too modest or doesn't want to break the rules. If you like Tim's pics, visit him on FB @ Tim Doolin Photography. (If this gets me banished, so be it!) Support his efforts.

Great photo's Tim!!

Were those all pics from last season, or a collaboration of multiple years? Were they taken in the same general area?

I've often thought about spending an entire season in the Estes Park area, where the elk are highly visible during the rut, and doing nothing but taking the best pics I can get. That would be almost as satisfying as hunting for the needle in the haystack in OTC, for me.

Probably not last season since those pics were posted March of 2020. :-)
