It took two weeks but I finally got my archery elk. 5X6, tenty-two yards, gold tip 75-95, topped with 125 grain bacon skinners. Will post pics in a day or two.

Pics

Here is a pic. My friend called this bull down the hill to about 15 yards. I went to full draw but he stopped behind a tree and all i could see was horns and head. I held draw for about 2 minutes and starting shaking. I think he seen me shaking so he ran back up the hill. I let down and shook my arms out while my buddy called again. Back down the hill he came and stopped at 22 yards broad side. Pulled back and let him have it. He ran about 40 yards and stopped to another cow call. Stood there about 2 to 3 minutes and folded over dead. This was an awesome experience. I hope you guys have as good of luck as I have this year.

That's a good looking rack, nice hunting! I don't think I could hold draw for 2 minutes.

I gotta ask you about the water?

I shot this bull @ 7:30 AM and we didn't get this bull back to camp where this picture was taken until 12:30 PM. I had the guts knocked out and had him cut in half within 45 min but the hide was on awhile and it was fairly warm that day. The quickest way to cool them down is to throw them in the river next to camp. I find skinning them in the water is actually easier. Let him sit in the water for about 45 more min and then run em into town for a wash and hang into cooler. Freezer is now full!
