OK I'll start , A fellow I know from work drew a 1st season rifle tag , he and his friends did several scouting trips in the weeks leading up to the season , one of whom knew the area well.They located a good number of elk and a few bulls pushing the 350 mark and they knew where they wanted to be for the first morning. Then bad news , a few days before season the guy with the tag got the flu BADDD. Opening morning they spotted a 340 class bull about a 1/2 mile away up on a ridge at 8 am by 11 am , week with feaver he had only made it about 400 yards up the hill.He figured he was screwed there was no way we could climb any higher . While they rested some one spotted 3 bulls bedded in some trees at there same elivation 400 yards away and they were all looking the other direction. It took a while but he made it 200 yards across the hill and took a 200 yd shot at the biggest one it scored out at 315 !! Thank god for his four good friends as they quarterd and packed out the bull faster than he could get himself off the mountan. He spent the next week home sick on the couch happy with his bull but still with thoughts of the 340 bull that was so close but yet so far away.

That is to bad your bud got the flu, but at least he still got to go hunting. And taking a bull going over 300 is definitely a good bull anywhere. Congrats to your bud!

Any pics of the bull?

Resident 6 pts , good hunt unit but it's high and cold by rifle season and snow can sometimes be a factor. I think I'll hunt it soon with one of my daughters but don't know if it will be rifle or black powder she has 5 points now.We both kind of like that september weather.
