You dont happen to drive a white dodge with company badging on it do you?

Great post and great bull!  It's stories and info like this that makes a forum worth following.  Funny how secretive people get over a tag that you'll draw once, if ever.  My partner and I took two nice Observatory bulls this year and I think it would be fun to help another winner- and without the pressure!  Colockum was my dream unit and I don't think I'll draw it while I'm "young."  Thanks for taking us along.

Thanks!

Hey I saw your bull! You're going to have a hard time topping that bull of a lifetime! Even in the colockum! Amazing bull and first elk! You may have ruined elk hunting for yourself tho.  :chuckle:

Amazing experience and great write up! You have a way of writing that makes the reader feel like part of the story, my heart actually started racing while you were running after Bulls! Thanks for including all the highs and lows of your hunt, like another post said, it made it feel real! congrats on an amazing animal and some incredible memories!  :tup:

Were you the guy in the white F-350 with the canopy and dirtbike on the back who pulled over to get behind me?   :chuckle:

Thanks very much!

They didn't have elk tags. They were just helping out.

Great write up and really enjoyed your detail!  Deserves a magazine spot. Sounds like you have a knack for elk and remembering the finest details for a great read.
