One of the guys got it done solo for us. His first bull and his first year archery elk hunting. He practiced all year getting bugle and cow tones down.

I get a call mid day Sept 29th from him. Breathing extremely hard overcome with excitement saying, "I got a bull down, bull down baby! I just watched him roll 50 yards away!"

Thats when I knew I had to go help. Well very long story short, onX measures as the crow flies so what looks like 3 miles ended up being over 7 from the truck. Got there with one of our friends to head in and help, we didn't get back until 2 am. Next day me and him had to go get the rest. 7 in 7 out. Another 1230 am excursion. Beautiful country. Rugged though.

In a few months the video will be up for all to see.image000002(2).jpg

Good looking bull!

But... 7 miles in solo???




You can’t cheat the mountain

Yea I didn't believe it until my tracker came back saying it. His tent was 4 miles in off a trail so that was nice but last 2 miles weren't. Down 2 drainages and up 3
