TOAD!

I hunted NM for my first elk hunt this year and was blown away at the amount of animals we saw, maybe100 elk in 3.5 days of hunting. We had bulls up to 300" within 90 yards, just couldn't get them to commit, I was a week early. I am definitely hooked and will be planning out my hunts for the coming years! I did mange to get a small 5x5 and am extremely happy with him.

What a rush!

Congrats on a trophy of a lifetime!

Heck of a bull. Anyone put a tape on it yet? First year I went I shot a 361” public land bull in Colorado. It was the first elk that I saw. Congratulations

Well, now you've gone and done it. Nice bull, but more so, nice shot. To have one bugle at 12 paces is what it's all about. Doesn't matter the size.

Now for the bad news, this October you'll be setting in the deer stand thinking, this just isn't the same and looking online at Colorado 2nd season otc tags. Your hooked. Mortgage the house and start buying points in states you've never even been to.

I'm sixty, I still have mountain goat on my list. But that idea is starting to fade a little.

Judging from the pics, you are decades away from being too old for this. But I'm sure you felt different after the pack-out.
