Default Colorado bull down !

Had one of the best elk hunts I've ever had this morning. Not the biggest but the perfect way it happened was awesome. Story coming later but I've got a lot of work to do right now. The pack out was rough !

I can understand why you need a rest after having to pack that big dude all the way out with a tractor. You best set and drink a few before attemping to do a writeup. Try not to get too tired watching it get gutted, and quartered. MIght need a few more drinks for that as well!

Congrats on a nice bull!!

I've only gone once and we were over 10,500 feet at camp and everything was nearly straight up or down. I want to go back and hunt some of that flatter ground like you were on.
