I'm leaving Tues for a Utah elk hunt. Your story makes the time go by even slower, Thanks alot! LOL Great bull.

Only thing I noticed is that that broadhead left a very tiny hole. Good thing you made a good shot and he didn't go far. Did he bleed much? Were you impressed with the job the head did?

1 3/8" cut Grim Reaper. Big body elk & I had washed all the blood off before I took the picture.I meant to take a close up shot of entrance hole. But it did make him Very Dead

Awesome -- I just spent last week on a wilderness hunt in Northern Colorado. Saw a lot of bulls (50+) but could not get one in bow range. Had a 350 class bull get within 150 yards and a smaller 5x5 come to about 65 yards. Even though we had no success, we enjoyed the beautiful country and hearing the bugles and seeing the elk herds. This was a very physically taxing hunt and really made me appreciate how hard it is to take an elk with a bow. Congrats on your success!

Congrats!!! Wow, quite an accomplishment. I just got back from my second elk hunt with an empty cooler. I had a couple of chances on some cows, but I couldn't seal the deal. What unit were you hunting, if I may ask. I was hunting unit 5 off private land. Not many bulls and they were not very active.
