Title: Perfect Season
Post by: blacktailcody on September 28, 2017, 09:36:24 AM
Out of all of the six elk seasons I have hunted now this one stands out as my favorite. I took seven days off of work throughout the season. Over the first six days I had a couple close encounters and an amazing time hiking and camping. On the last day my uncle and I went after a bull I had heard the night before. We got to a place we felt was close enough to him and I set up looking over a creek while my uncle called behind me. It only took seven minutes before I saw antlers coming out of the thick brush. He stopped head on at 32 yards in a place where I had a perfect hole in the brush. I drew and aimed at his chest, anchored, took a calming breath and squeezed the trigger on my release. The next thing I remember is watching my arrow disappear into his lower neck completely. He spun, ran into a little meadow and tipped over in sight. My arrow had gone through heart, lungs, liver, gut and was lodged about 3/4" into the rear leg bone. RAD broadhead was still in perfect shape!

I feel very blessed to have a season in which I was able to hunt every day I had off and still come up with a bull on the last day. Thanks for reading!
