After 16 days into my 17 day hunt I was able to harvest this nice 6x7 bull in Eastern Oregon. Many miles hicking around chasing elk and several close calls one finally worked out. I positioned myself between two buggeling bulls. As I watched this bull and his few cows work my direction the wind shifted and was blowing right at them at 60 yds they stopped knowing something wasnt right. I was thankful I had put another set of sitka on that morning along with a sponge shower the night before. The elk continued and I drew my bow cow calling at 40 yards the bull stopped broad side and I shot him through the chest a little far back but did get one lung the diaphram and through the liver. He went about 150 yds and died, making this my third 6x7 second biggest and 6 straight tags filled. Im very blessed to be able to spend my time in Gods country chassing elk.

Great bull. Congratulations It is good to see that Oregon still has one, or should I say had one that big. LOL

Well done!

I have lots of great memories from summers packing in from the Eagle Cap Pack Station.
