So green out there. My guide told me this would be a special year.

Yelp, found three mature deer In 7 days, but saw 4 bulls easily over 360. Screwing around I called in 6 bulls from 180 to 300

All in all great week of hunting, special year for elk thats for sure. Congrats again

Congratulations on getting an incredible bull. Holy cow you may not top that one for a while. What a hunt that must've been.

I'm jealous. Very nice. I came home from my trip to Montana this year without any meat or horns.

Awesome, we just spent a week in Colorado with no success. Sore knees let me know just how old I am. Only limited time to continue the chase. Awesome pics.
