Best friend's 1st Elk is a nice one
« on: October 27, 2017, 09:15:13 PM »
ScottA a hunt wa guy took down his 1st elk today. Many thanks to 400out, Gentry, Rhino and other for advice on a unit new to us. We have 2 any bull tags and ScottA nailed a nice 6x6 over 300 inches. (we hope) Tried to up load pics but still in the woods. 17 points to draw these tags. We have been busting our butts.

That is a great bull.

Glad to hear Hunt WA members were willing to lend some helpful advice. I see some pepperoni in their future.

As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.
