Awesome!  Looks like you did that tag justice and had some good company for the trip.  Was it bittersweet taking a shot on the first morning, or kind of a relief?

Ganghis - there were definitely mixed emotions, you nailed it! The relief was huge as this hunt has been my focus since June but I wont lie in saying my mind was curious of what other opportunities awaited.  That unit holds some monster bulls but the reality is there are a ton of variables - distance, terrain, etc...  I couldn't be more proud of this guy and excited to get him on the wall.  Dropped him off for a euro mount yesterday.  BTW - this is my fourth elk and second bull (biggest by far).

Good job!!!  Where did u end up getting it???

Peaches Ridge tag filled!  Thanks to each and every one of you who shared info, provided guidance and helped in my success.  Numerous scouting trips throughout the summer learning the area and determining where to focus were instrumental, however produced less sightings than anticipated – this is VAST/RUGGED country!  We set up camp on Wednesday (9/21) and were immediately seeing/hearing fired up bulls which continued through the week.  Opening morning found us set up in a valley holding three bulls.  While they were vocal, they weren’t visible and quickly began moving deeper – temps were headed to 83 degrees .  Instead of pressuring them, we headed toward plan B - on the way, my buddy Howie suggested we try a bugle off an overlook which was immediately met with a response (loud and up-close!).  My nephew Jon bailed and spotted the bull - I quickly followed, got set up and waited for yardage (256).  After a few seconds of studying the bull, a first shot anchored him (spine) with follow ups to ensure no lost animal, unnecessary tracking, or falling deeper into the abyss (very steep).  Boned out meat and packs were in the truck by 11:30am on opening day.
The bull is icing on the cake as we met some great people, witnessed beautiful scenery, and shared in some once in a lifetime experiences.  Huge shout out to my nephew (Jon), and best buds (Howard/Kurt) for making the trip to support me and busting their asses getting the bull off the mountain.
Grateful and gracious,
Doug
