My 2016 bull. OTC, DIY, Archery, public land  ID hunt. Just returned from the great trip with some of my best friends. Found this bull quite a few miles in an among 40 cows; worked him for over any hour but he kept pushing the cows away in an attempt to leave. Finally got him to commit to coming in using a technique by Joel Turner called 'bull calling cows bugle'. Worked like a charm! He finally left the cows, came down the hill to fight, stopped him quartering away at 50 yards and let fly. Never saw what caliber he was till about 10 minutes before I loosed the arrow and was very pleasantly surprised.

great elk area looks familiar and if so grandparents may have lived down bellow. Grats.

Here is my hunting buddy's (DanP) last day of the season Whiteriver bull.  We were able to bring him in for a pretty close shot with some challenge bugles and tree raking.

Killed this Oregon bull on September 8th from a treestand over a wallow.  8-9 yard shot, went 30 yards and fell over.
