First Archey Bull

Recommended Posts

Spent the last few days up north chasing bugles. I’ve killed a bull before with a rifle and killed a cow with a bow so not necessarily a stranger to elk hunting but far from seasoned. Lots of failed attempts, long hours sitting trails, miles walked. In the end it came down to me and an ancient bull mixing it up one on one in the timber. Our paths so happened to cross and a single arrow put him down quickly. I believe he will easily qualify for P&Y, making him the first “book” animal I’ve ever taken. Couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out! 

Side note - I knew he was “old” but after getting a look at his teeth I was hoping maybe someone with more experience could chime in with an age estimate!

Were you sitting a trail when you shot him? I was trying to figure that out from your vids on IG. Didn’t look like water or salt 

I sat the same trail a majority of the time, my dad and some family friend have killed lots of elk on that trail and I killed my cow there last year. The day I killed my bull I had sat the trail for like 8 hours and I said “f this” and went to chase bugles. Worked out
