40 yrds observatory bull took almost 2 weeks of grinding . First archery elk. Called in from 600 yrds .
Great job, Scottcrb!  I spent 8 days in Observatory for a bull, but couldn't get it done. When did you get that bull?
I got him Wednesday and my partner shot a 6x6 on Thursday.

That's why it's good to hunt to the last day! Good for you both!

Observatory Archey 9/21. Hard season with intense highs and lows. Hats off to ScottCRB for an amazing calling job to bring this bull from great distance. My first archery kill and first branch bull.

Mfowl, are you the one I talked to while you were cleaning it by the creek? I was in a yellow side by side.

If I only could have predicted the weather when I requested time off for the hunt!
They finally started bugling, huh? Glad to see such nice bulls taken by archers!

We had a early season we won't ever forget. Got my first bull opening morning, my brother got a huge cow at 79 yards opening afternoon, my dad got his spike on the last day of season. My brother also got his buck opening weekend of deer season. In 15+years hunting this area I have never had an elk in the area during season so it was a very strange but rewarding year.
