One was just starting to get it but was still healthy looking.  The other three didn't have any hoof rot.

Grundy, your group is one that I enjoy seeing every year.  Sure, it’s light, but dang you guys pull out all the stops.  Congrats to you!

Dads Colorado bull.  Scouting since I arrived in Colorado paid off.  This is his first bull elk, and something he’s been talking about forever.

Miles, what part of CO.  I lived there a few years.  You can PM me if you want.  Thx. Nice bull!

Where’s the cape dude?!! That thing is a wall hanger. I think you’ll regret it if you don’t mount that bull

It's pretty cheap to buy a cape though.  That's what I ended up doing for last years bull.

I’d say a pretty good year for us. 3 for 3 on bulls! Mine in the middle was on the 9th day of hunting. Gotta stay after it!

These are our Oregon archery bulls from this year...Still getting to do it with Dad and my brother.  I was the Gatherer this year.  Dad and my brother were both successful.  My brother hadn't killed a bull in 8 years, so I told him I would be caller for him on this day.  We had a real good bull going, but he decided to take his cows and head over the ridge, and we were trying to move up on him, I caught this bull heading off another ridge heading the same direction as we were.  Moving quickly, we got there before he did and he offered a 32 yard shot for my brother as I was telling him " kill him".  Well he made a great shot and the dry spell was over.  Was a great year and very happy and lucky to still be able to hunt with my dad and family.  I was even able to get the wife up to camp and help with my dad's bull.

My best so far, 2nd branched bull, following a barely legal 3pt last year. On the Tuesday of early muzzy in the Yale unit western wa. 135 yards off hand heart shot. 5x5. Took about 5 steps and went down. Made some new friends this season while out there. Would of been packing all day if it wasnt for one of them that helped me out.
