I tagged out on my Washington State muzzy bull elk special permit yesterday. I missed a bigger 6x6 opening morning at 147 yards and had another very close encounter Tuesday morning. We camped up in the wilderness for the first few days and hiked like I’ve never hiked before, after some of my hunting party had to take off, My brother Chad and I decided to check out a different area of the unit that an archery tag permit holder told me about. Walking up the trail In super stealth mode, Chad started making some soft cow calls as we walked. We stopped to take a breather and heard a branch snap. We look up the trail 60 yards and my bull steps out. Doesn’t see us or even look our way. He crosses the trail and we lose sight. Chad says “it’s a bull and I think he’s a good 5” I start sneaking up to rest on a tree and the bull turns around and steps back out onto the trail!

Chad does a quick cow call to stop him. I put my open sights right behind the shoulder and pull the trigger. With the smoke it’s hard to see, but immediately felt like it was a good hit. We walk up to where the elk was and find pink frothy blood. It was a double lung hit. We start tracking blood for about 70 yards to the edge of a VERY steep and deep canyon. We are terrified that he went down to the bottom. We look down the trail that runs along the top of a cliff and I spot him. There he laid. He didn’t go down the canyon.

My brother and I celebrate. I feel like my dad was with me at that point. I feel it come over me. I could feel him there with us. Chad and I spent the next 6 hours packing him back to the truck.

He wasn’t the ”mounter” I was after on day one of the hunt, but I feel like I put in a ton of hard work on this hunt and am very happy with how it turned out. It’s exactly how my dad would have written it up.

I had some amazing people help me more than they know. This was a hard hunt for me, but with their encouragement and willingness to share knowledge, I always had hope.

Thank you to Chad, Jason, Brady, Jerry Cella Ross Sharp Tom Johnson Scott Frick

I was lucky enough to harvest my first elk here in NE Wa. He came in silent on the fourth day of my solo hunt. I was able to send my buddy a message and he came out for the pack out.
