Maybe there gladiators, maybe a night shot got spooked.
But I think ur right they shot him and he got away. I’ve
Found elk in rifle season that look like a pen cushion after
Bow season. Anyway a sad way for such a magnificent
animal. Find him or her and fine them for not finishing there
part of the job.

Any possibility that a hunter shot it and it got away from him? I once shot a mule deer in CO that had been wounded and escaped from another hunter. When I stumbled on to it the coyotes were in the process of pulling it down. I shot it and took it back to the other hunter’s camp but he was gone and I had no way of finding him. So I used my tag on it. The meat was great.
