2016 Was Good To Us!
« on: January 04, 2017, 07:07:34 AM »

 We took 5 bulls in the Crew this year & assisted 3 more in their elk hunts as well, all in all a very good year with 8 bulls down, all OTC DIY public land hunts. Thought I'd finally get around to sharing them with other elk hunters who share our passion! Thanks!

  Paul II scored first, called this bull to 22 yards.

  I took this one mid Oct.

  Grandson with 1st deer at 10 years old! OTC DIY. Very proud of him!

  Clayton's bull!

  Colby's bull!

Is the red shirt supposed to piss the bull off and make him come in faster?

Thanks guys! Yep lots of packing for sure, all those critters were broken down & packed out on our backs, no elk loaded whole out in these parts! (grin)

  Mike, I wear all sorts of things when elk & deer hunting, I like camo especially some new GameGear camo I picked up last year but I hunt elk in all sorts of clothing, it all depends on the weather. Elk do not care what you wear! (grin) Thanks!
