"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter

Colockum muzzy bull 10/4. Only took 26 points...LOL. Looking at this it might be my last bull. I'm 60 now and can't get it done like I used to but thanks to some amazing friends I was able to fill the tag. My husband, who has been my hunting partner for 25 years had a medical issue come up so he couldn't hunt. I was so down, we had really looked forward to a tag like this for us for so long. Our friend, his son, and his son's friend stepped in and their generosity in opening their cabin to us and their help all the way thru meant that I could go on this hunt. Usually I am a rifle hunter, but being able to hunt this time of the year was an amazing experience. So many elk, so many bulls, the sounds, the smells..it was awesome. I had an opportunity every day. This bull presented the best opportunity for a clean kill on the last day that I would be able to hunt. He certainly wasn't the biggest bull we saw but I'm really happy to fill an empty freezer with this one. So thanks Jim and Mark, and Duckhunter14 for making this possible and so much damn fun!
What a nice bull.  Great job, friends and family is the whole point!

2017 Idaho OTC.  My first archery harvest and called all 3 in to less than 20 yards with my Phelps E-Z-Estrus call.  Epic season for sure!
