Finally got my Bull

Yes finally.....Hunted unit 2 in North Idaho on Wednesday morning.
I didnt get out of the house until late , got the wife and kids off to work/school.
I got out of my truck and put my phone on silent....it was 6:52 am.
I Walked down the logging road a short distance and cow called 3 times and heard a very faint chuckle and limbs breaking. It was all I could do to get off the road and behind a small tree. Just as I was nocking the arrow, he stepped out broadside at 45 feet. Drew back , released and double lunged him. He didnt make it 100 feet and dropped, done. Took out my phone , it was 7:08. 16 minutes of the biggest thrill of my life.
Nice bull, 4x4 with double brows. My first . I will post pictures soon.
Happy hunting and good luck to everyone .

Congrats youll be eating good. Jerry at Monarch Meats makes great smokies. I had him make 100 lbs of smokeies from the cow I shot last year and they where great.

I cut an wrap all my own meat but I didnt have time to make 10lbs of sausage.

I had about 300 off the cow she was big and old but still great eating.

When you say North of Cocalala do you mean north east? I am thinking of scouting Talache today, prolly PO the bow hunters though.

Thanks everyone for the great comments.
BTW IdahoJoe, not to bad mouth anyone , but I had a bad experience with Monarch a few years ago when I never recieved the Sausage that I had paid extra for. Never.... and the meat that I got back was not all from the deer that I had shot and that was upsetting to me. I know how I take care of my game in the field, unfortuanatley, not everyone does the same.
I take care of my own deer now. I took my Elk up to Woods this year. Never used them , but I only hear good things. Got some Brats and some jalapeno cheddar smokies done too.
