Well I’ll join in on this, I was one of the lucky WINNERS of a Wasatch mid Bull tag at EXPO and after a lot of research I decided to hire an Outfitter for the first time in my life (50) so I Chose Strawberry Bay Outfitters! And it turned out to be a great choice! We hunted hard for 7 days in some beautiful country and seen a good number of Elk 80/100 a day of different animals 15/25 bulls but a lot of 310 type of bulls or broken 😞 on the seventh morning I spotted this Bull bedded in some Quakies 3 ridges over and we decided he deserved a closer look 😉 after 45 minutes of pulling our guts out I was 642 yards away and decided I liked what I seen! The RUM did it job and it was time to call Luke ! And this was one of my favorite pictures of the whole trip !
Great bull man! I myself had a late season Wasatch tag, settled on a bull that just broke 300” opening morning, I was super lucky to have my ol man with me for the weekend and I spotted him at 300 yards and it was just too good of an opportunity for myself.

I was up there 2 weeks before the hunt started and seen a ton of broken bulls. I had one bull that we believed was over 340, but he disappeared a week before the hunt started! The Wasatch is definitely a fun unit!

Again, congrats on an awesome bull, and picture!!

My New Mexico Gila Wilderness elk! This bull made us work, 54 miles hiked in just under 4 days and my back still hurts from packing it out!

First bull/elk and had a chance to hunt some private ground. After 8 years of struggling with a bow, I was super stoked and didn't mind the pack out via tractor.

B72A78B7-EF22-4F0E-85AC-D9869D87E051.jpeg Montana ‘21. First archery bull! Got to know this bull pretty well. After a few encounters with him (and a handful of others throughout 10 days) we could never get him to commit to our bugles. So when we got another chance at him we got in tight and gave him a few cow calls. That did the trick! He came in and gave me a broadside shot at 23 yards. We we’re 7 miles from the trailhead and grinning ear to ear the whole way! What a trip! So thankful for my hunting partner!
