I finally got the picture to post.   :bash:

I filled the tag in the Wenaha unit this past weekend.   A DIY hunt with my family.   Not at all the bull I had envisioned shooting, but I couldn't pass up on this unique bull.   I had planned several more weeks of hunting in the peak of the rut and October, but again couldnt pass up on this.  Also, this was the only week my dad and brother-in-law could be there.   The tag was a great experience.  We saw more than 20 bulls in the 4 days I hunted, including at least one monstrous bull that I couldnt find again.   Thanks to everyone who helped with advice and specific pointers! 


This would be my perfect bull.  Gorgeous!

Cool bull.

How long of a shot? Bow or gun?
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

I have only ever killed bulls with my bow, but I decided to cheat and used my rifle.   I shot it with my 300 PRC from 700 yards.  I've been practicing for years at ranges much further than that and felt good about it.  It really was an unbelievable advantage to use a gun in country where I could see for miles.  A bow is such a crappy weapon by comparison....thats also what I love about a bow.
