I opened my email to a great suprise...

a member on this site (secret) had been watching my elk but decided not to hunt him...however she/he did get a few pics of my bull...

so heres two pics of my bull alive and in full velvet from not long ago (I believe less than a month)





I was VERY excited to get these pics...  thats pretty darn rare if ya ask me.

I have gone through decent efforts to conceal the area where I killed this bull...everyone else please respect that and dont give any info that would identify it!

thanks
so you mean you wont take me out there to try and fill my tag..........
Congrats on a nice bull and great story

Not to jack your thread Tat, I talked to M-Ray a while ago. They have been on a few bulls since daylight and were going to stick it out till dark, lets hope TMike sticks one as well and we can celebrate both of you guys tonight.

Oh and tmike and I have a story about opening day that hopefully he wants to tell and I'll add some pics ... it doesn't end like yours but very exciting stuff for sure!

Nice bull Dave, your on a roll. I haven't posted anything yet, but I will. A few close calls and a few run ins with other hunters who made us change our plans. We will go in deeper next time.

Nice job LongTatLaw.  I am stuck here at work this week and missing the whole first week of archery elk (except a couple of hours opening morning) :bash: :bash:, so I am living vicariously through you guys...

I was brush shooting last night, and had my arrow skip off into lala land.  Took me 20 minutes to find, but I wasn't going to leave a 25 dollar broadhead and a 15 dollar arrow behind.   :yike:

Nice bull, great story!  That pic of Miranda with baby on front is priceless.  What a hunting wife! My wife couldn't be more supportive also.  Lot's of guys jealous of wives like we have!

Dave,

Just got done reading this, sounds like you have had an awesome year, congrats to you. Like already said, your bull is awesome, your awesome, but the best picture you got is the one with the wife and the lil one.

It's awesome when the entire family is involved. And you need to get that bull mounted that was your babies first assist on a bull, so make the memories last.
