Colockum quality late… (Mission complete and pics added)
« on: October 24, 2021, 12:21:28 AM »
One more day and the bull tags start! I have a quality bull tag for Colockum. Been here for 9 days and have seems decent bulls but after all the archery pictures it’s hard to shoot a small one! Lol I am fortunate to have seen bulls everyday. I’ll keep at it and don’t need to fill it with a small bull if I don’t want to. I shot a smaller moose in 13’ because it was the right situation with my dad. He actually drew the colockum tag last year however passed away from cancer before he was able to go on the hunt. So the odds of me drawing it this year (with 29 points) was a crazy deal but I’m here to make him proud! This ones for you dad!

Good luck!! Enjoy, and don't stress to much about size, do like you did for your moose, just take the one that feels right. I;m sure you'll find a dandy!

Good luck. I know there were some nice ones still there when I left at the end of archery. I don't think anyone got the 8x8 or the 7x8 (with a nice droptine) that I was after. Plus some odd ones that were just cool.

Sounds like you know where and what you’re hunting. If for some reason you would like a little help or direction, I might be able to help. Enjoy the hunt, your dad would be proud. Have a good hunt

Well, I’m still at it looking for the right one. I passed on a pretty decent 320ish 6 yesterday. Today I’ve seen a 5x6 and a small 6. The fog has been absolutely brutal to deal with!! I’ll be hiked into an area a mile and the fog will roll in and I can’t see 40 yards. I’m at least seeing elk and seeing bulls. I just have to find the right one! Thanks for everyone’s good luck and help. We will get this done!
