i shot my bull the second day and was glad that i did. it was about 70 the entire week. great elk hunting weather right? we saw a lot of elk but they were not on our property and another guy was nice enough to shoot twice at them from about 800 or 900 yards away. just to move them away from us, and there was a nice bull that would have scored about 350. but shot my elk at 300 yards, little far for me but one shot he kicked and then dropped. he was a big bodied elk that lost some fights. he was a 5x4 and would have been a small 6x6 but it was an amazing stalk that lasted about a mile and a half. thanks to all that wished me luck. no bear but late season and hot weather i was lucky to get a bull. heres a picture: like i said he got his butt kicked a couple times. says the file is too big will try and do some work but have never resized before.

Laredo, Congrats on getting your bull. I ran into a few rude hunters in Montana this year over by Gardiner. Sorry to hear about that, if tends to happen more today then it use to. How did your Dad do? E-mail me the photo and resize it & I'll post it for you.
