2020 Washington Roosevelt Herd Bull
My first elk

He had 3 cows with him. I was solo and called him close before his cows called my bluff. I charged in using the bull calling cows bugle which enraged him forcing him to fight. He circled me and a quick cow call got him to stop and turn broadside for a quick 28 yard shot through the brush for a double lung shot. Couldn't be happier with my first elk.

Keep the wind in your hair, and the sun at your back.


A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.


What would life be without the thrill of the hunt ?

DIY public land.  1st time hunting this area but it was a lot of fun to figure out!  Hard to pass up a freezer filler.  #tagtofreezer

You should have that bulls age estimated. What does it's teeth look like? Just a unique looking rack!

Good question.  He had a decent body but was a pretty small main frame 5.  I will check the teeth (still have it waiting to do a euro) My guess was 3.5 rather than regressing.
