Man, that is an awesome write up. Congrats on the bull. Love how you took all the meat off that elk. Respect!

Thank you for all the great comments guys, I appreciate it. My only regret is being done SO FAST, and not getting to spend more time in the woods. Momma is glad to have me home, and I'm heading to Idaho in a couple weeks so these brownie points count for a lot!

I started cutting meat yesterday and it's crazy to me how big everything is. I've killed several elk, but never a mature bull. They are crazy big animals. Going to be lots and lots of good chewing.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

Bringing this back for a quick reboot. My buddy Jordan finished editing the video to his content. He wanted to tell a story with this, about the importance of the hunt, hunters ethics, and so on. He did a good job. Take a look. Oh and don't make fun of my calling! I'm still learning, and it was good enough to call in a bull!

What the... 5:30 into the video and we already have a BBD! Man.


Great Video. More to hunting than the kill or the horns.

Yeah, I didn't waste any time, nor did I give him any real opportunity to get good footage of animals. That was my only real regret with the hunt, was killing one so fast and not getting to interact with more animals. So it goes. Had elk tacos last night, they were delicious.
