Here is my bull. 22 yard shot and only made it about 30-35 yards before nose diving and wedging his head between two trees. First archery elk and archery kill for that matter

We went through the entire early archery and we're 3-days into the muzzle loader season for Nooksack, and not a single pic !

Great job, Scottcrb!  I spent 8 days in Observatory for a bull, but couldn't get it done. When did you get that bull?
