About 10-15 mins of us standing there and saying "did you here that, he's getting closer" one of the Pend Oreille crew yells softly there is a giant bull on the ridge.  After calming down and is asking for what seems like 5 mins he was able to point out where he has seen the bull on the opposite ridge. We can only see one paddle but he was in the sun and it looked huge. At 770 yards you could see him naked eye and know he was the bull that we need to call in and get Jayda a shot at. The bull began to move along the top of the ridge to our right. This story is gonna get confusing but I will to my best.

Realizing that we could not shoot from where we were set up. And with a lot of people whispering and moving. We decided to move forward into the drainage with just Jayda, her father, and a video guy (close family friend) and myself. After looking at a few spots to set up we chose one that we could look across the valley where the road had cut back (approximately 200 yards)and we hoped we could direct the bull to. We continued to call for about 20 mins, only able to hear the bull because he was on the top of the ridge in front of us probably now 500ish yards (left the range finders with the crew). He was now working away from us to the right but we figured he was just working his way down the hill. Bulls are way easier to call when you do not have pressure like this on your shoulders.

As he worked down the ridge to the right he finally turned downhill towards us and we started to get glimpses of him again through the brush on the side hill. Not wanting him to go further down hill I moved way to the left of Jayda and began to call the bull. He must have read the script because he hit the road and began to work directly toward the spot directly across from us that we had set up for. He needed to work about 200 yards along the road on the opposite side hill and he would be perfect for the shot. Still wanting him to move to the left and not down in the ravine, I told Jayda and her dad that I was going to go to where the road cuts back and call him across the hill and call, but that if he got to the spot we had talked about to shoot him even if I was not back to them. But inside I was hoping to be back to witness the finale of the hunt.

I walked up the road to where the road cuts back, beating a lot of brush with my paddle and grunting a lot. One final cow call from the corner and I knew he was committed to coming. I beat feet back to Jayda just in time to watch the bull come out from the brush across the draw. He needed to go about 10 more yards and we would be golden. I can hear Josh (Jayda's dad) talking her through the shot. She is seated in a nice fold out chair with a sturdy tripod shooting stick in front of her. After watching her shoot earlier in the day I was not worried about her marksmanship. The bull began to move and I told her I would stop him as soon as he cleared the brush. The bull stepped out and stepped on his own and she made a perfect shot. The bull humped up and stood his ground.

Jayda reloaded like a pro and put 3 more rounds all within 6" of each other right in the boiler room. The bull soon tipped over and then the excitement and emotion took over. We could hear the whole crew cheering. The bull had stopped in the only gap on the hill where they got to see the whole thing.  Again I am not an emotional guy as many of you know but this has been the best hunting and one of the most amazing experiences of my life. I feel like Jayda family. She will never read this but I love her and think she is an awesome young woman. 

Lots of pics and video to get through only cell phone pics today, but I will get more pics and video soon.  This young lady is proud of her bull and wants everyone to see her bull.
