Opening day
« on: September 12, 2021, 09:26:38 PM »
Quite day, couple bugles in the morning with no sighting but a bear at 25 yards.  Took off running.   Somewhat still/slow stalking the timber, heard a stick break twice, sure enough it’s an elk, couldn’t see head gear to make sure it’s legal, sure enough see a main beam I figured he’s a shooter, stepped out into the open at 25 yards, full pass thru, he ran out To 61 yards from me an tipped over.

Solo butcher an packout are brutal.  Don’t wanna do that again.

Congrats.  I did the same on a solo bull.  It was brutal.  Won't ever do that again.
Cut em!
It's not the shells!  It's the shooter!

Wow, you have to be pumped!!  I bet the soreness is almost gone now, well worth the effort.  That is a great bull, congrats man.  I won't ask which unit, but looks like an eastside bull?
