Scotta, that's a very nice bull! Would love to hear the story behind it.
After hunting hard and feeling the pressure of all the regular season hunters moving in my hunting partner and I were fortunate to find this bull crossing the road at daylight then cross back 30 after daylight at the same spot on Thursday . Friday morning we decided to drop me off and walk up the road at the spot and wait , partner drove past me and 3 min later the bull sneaks down the hill and I dropped him 50 yards from the road . Approx 10 min after daylight shortest day hunting ever . First bull !

Awesome man, way to keep at it! Gotta love when a plan works out. Thanks for sharing.
