You could stop there, and it would be an awesome hunt.  Nothing better than what you described already.  Bugling bulls, tag in your pocket, cold beer, wood stove crackling.  Wish every month was September.

100% agree.  That's heaven on earth.

And congratulations on a nice bull, taken at spear-throwing range!  Thanks for sharing the hunt in pictures and words.

My boy's excitement for my hunt and putting his hands on a bull elk for the first time was priceless.
