Nice
"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

Idaho Bulls! We were lucky enough to close the gap from 800 yards to 271 yards to make 3 great shots on 3 different bulls all at one time. The bulls laid only 60 yards apart from each other when it was all said an done. It took us 3 days to get all the meat out. It was worth it :)

We killed a bull the last weekend of rifle here on the west side.  We didn't see another rig (you can drive right to where we killed the elk) until about 9 a.m.  Opening day there were about 8 rigs in the area.
