HUNTING THE ELK
EXCITEMENT OF THE CHASE OF
THE STATELY ANIMALS.
Colorado la the Place Where These Noble
Creatures Are Found In Large yum
bera They Are Going, However, the
VTay of the Once Numerous Buffalo.
This 5s perhaps the frreatest game coun
try In the United States. Situated iu the
very heart of the Rocky mountains, the
least settled part, the towering peaks and
wooded slopes literally teem with deer, elk
and bear. Hut the onward march of civi
lization Is making Kreat inroads upon these
prond denizens of the forest, and soon they
will have joined the buffalo in the happy
hunting ground. In a varied experience.
covering several years, it has been my
pleasure to study the habits and character
istics of these animals, and I believe of all
the large game on this continent the elk is
the noblest, the grandest, the stateliest.
The moose, caribou, deer or mountain
sheep has each its points of excellence that
endear it to the heart of the sportsman,
but the elk possesses more than any of the
others. In size, sagacity, cunning and
wariness he is the superior of them all.
His keen scent, his penetrating eye, his
acute sense of hearing, combine in making
him one of the moet difficult animals to
He will travel twenty-four hours with
ease, never stopping to eat or drink. His
gait is a swift, swinging trot. He is as
graceful as a fawn and moves over the
ground at an astonishing pace. With his
immense artlers thrown back on his shoul
ders he will go through rocks, down tim
ber or brush with the greatest ease where
a horse, and sometimes a man, would have
difficulty in following. Hj is often found
above timber line and will traverse narrow
passes and denies, climbing over walls of
rock and through fissures where it would
seem impossible for an animal of his size
I well remember the first time I heard an
elk bugle. I was alone on top of the great
divide, and was walking along the bank of
the dizzy canyon at t he very head of Fish
creek. I was a novice in those days, and
fully expected to see a herd of grizzly bears
at every step. My nerves were at a great
tension, as the deep and gloomy canyons
and craggy cliffs at that point are dark
and foreboding, and have an oppressive ef
fect on a tenderfoot.
Suddenly there burst upon my ears the
clear, penetrating bugle of an elk. It was
a most strange, weird, peculiar sound,
baffling all efforts of the most skillful
word painter and startling in its sudden
ness. My hair stood on end. I wanted to
run, but did not know which way to go,
as the sound seemed to come rolling in
from every direction. I was bewildered
as the sound echoed from cliff to cliff and
went rolling away in the distance. Again
pealed out that clarion note, and this time
I espied along the canyon bank a moving
object, which I soon made out to be an elk.
He was a noble specimen, with immense
spreading antlers, and was coming directly
toward nie. I dropped down In-hind a rock
and awaited him. J ust in front of me was
a beautiful little park covered with a
carpet of green grr.ss, plentifully sprinkled
with (lowers, and into this he turned. He
stopped, threw his head back, swelled his
neck to an enormous size and once more
emitted that mournful wail. While he
was standing thus I took careful aim and
fired. He dropped like a log. The bullet,
took him square between the eyes. His
antlers had nine prongs to the side, and
the tip was six feet from his head.
During the latter part of NovemlK-r,
when the soft downy snow had piled up
over a foot deep on the valley, I accompa
nied a hunting expedition to the head
waters of Elk river. Here the elk congre
gate in large bands preparatory for their
winter trip south. We shoveled off a
camping place, and built a roaring fire.
After supper we sat around on logs and
smoked and told stories until late and
then rolled into our beds, spread on a
thick layer of spruce boughs, and dreamed
of elk and bear and all ot her game that is
dear to the heart of the sportsman. How
one can sleep on a bed of spruce boughs!
Morning dawned bright and clear, and
long before sunrise we were in motion.
We heard an elk bugle just over a little
hill from our camp, and believing there
was a band of them we made in that direc
tion. As we came upon the hill and looked
over we saw a beautiful sight. There in a
little valley was a bunch of more thun 200
elk. Some were lying, some standing and
others walking back and forth like senti
nels watching over a sleeping army. .Noise
lessly we crept back, und making a wide
detour we surrounded them. The sun
was well up by this time, and as it shone
upon the frost incrusted boughs of the
spruce they shone and sparkled like clus
ters of diamonds. The peaks are warmed
with a glow of sunlight, and are tinged
with a golden halo. It was a scene of
marvelous grandeur and beauty. A signal
was given and we all moved forward. An
ever watchful bull sounds a note of alarm,
and instantly the herd is in motion. They
go slowly down the gulch, moving in good
order, although the snow is three feet
The leader stalks proudly at the head of
the band. Suddenly from in front there
is a report, and we see a little puff of
smoke ascend. The leader stops, turns
around with his noble head lowered to the
ground, and his noble body trembles with
a new and deathly sensation. The snow
around is covered a bright crimson, and
this magnificent animal, which a few mo
ments ago walked proudly at the head of
his band, summons all his effort foragreat
leap and falls over dead. The band thus
suddenly deprived of a leader stands wa
vering for a moment and then breaks
apart, and one part runs up our hillside
while the others go the other way. Now
is the chance forhe hunter, nud we, who
are above him, look with eager expectancy
to see him nceept it. He rushes forward
just as the elk, seeing that they are sep
arated, turn and come together again like
the wings of a great army.
He is in the very midst of them, and
lliey, liewildered by the shooting, jump
first one way and then the other all around
him. Ilut this man, who a moment before
could kill an elk the first shot, is now Buf
fering from a severe attack of "buck
ague." It is too much for his nerves, and
he shoots fast and wild. He keeps up this
fusilade tmtil his cartridges are gone.
Thirty shots and he has not drawn blood.
The elks come to their senses and sweep
off down the gulch out of range. We hud
lots of fun twitting this hunter about his
cood marksmanship, but there are lots of
good hunters who get "rattled" when they
are in the midst of a baud of elk, some of
which could be killed with a butcher
knife. The tactics of the pot hunter are
to kill the leader of a band of elk, and
then they will often stand until they are
all shot down. C. II. Leckeuby in Denver

No external remedy ever yet devised
baa so fully and unquestionably met
these three prime conditions so success

are safe because they contain no dele

Tbey are sure because nothing goes into
them except ingredients which are ex

the plaster is required. They are speedy
in their action because their medicinal
