Some dandy Bulls, boys!  Looking forward to seeing more.  It seems like many are off to a good start.

There are some great looking bulls in here that haven't made it to the photo album in the virtual campfire.

Congrats to all and please post a photo here as well.

I was able to get it done Tuesday evening.  He was at 51 yards let an arrow fly, he ran 10 yards and I watched him drop.  Gotta love the reapers Razortip.  This would have never happened without the help of a good buddy.

Idaho bull from Sunday but I think it may have been the last one with all the wolves..  :chuckle: Will put story up when I get more time.   Big thanks to hunting partners bullblaster and Jonathan_s for keeping me motivated and allowing me to fill my tag..  Hopefully we can fill some more tags next week and add to the post.



Nice Bull! Go Cougs!

Nothing yet, but after walking in 2 1/2 miles in the Margaret on a road blocked by a tree found this on our camera an hour before we got there.  The time is off.  Was shocked to see the trucks riding over and through alders that would be tough on a four wheeler.  Hunted until almost dark and heard them coming out.  Figured they had an elk to recover and saw an elk rack and elk in back of the pickup.  Good to see someone fill a tag.
