Over Labor Day weekend, I took my wife and son on a combo camping/scouting trip. We camped by the river so we could have shade from the large cottonwoods and swim in the cool water during the middle of the day. We found a ton of elk, including a couple great bulls. I found S3, a great bull I initially found the week before, and was able to get some photos of him.
