Default Finally dream came true. Bull elk

I was blessed to be able to finally get to hunt and not film on this hunt. We found this bull about 2 miles away and put him to bed in the late morning. Came back that afternoon and called him in just how itís supposed to happen. 22 yards and a double lung and I completed my lifetime dream. He was broke up pretty good since the first time we found him.

Great bull! Congrats! To say I'm ate-up with elk hunting would be an understatement. It's addicting.

Have another pic you can share that shows another angle. Show that guy off!!

Congrats on a great bull! I chased a bull very similar to that around New Mexico last week. His 7 side was off the left sword though.
