Colohunter, I'm curious about the ivories this bull had. Were they dark like the antlers or was the ring pattern light in color?

I'm hopin for my first too.
I'm also a college student here in Salt Lake City Utah and I'm hopin this year I can acheive some firsts just like you. I've been hunting elk for years now but I have yet to put one on the ground. I feel like it may happen this year. My two brothers and I are going out next week. We often do what you did with back packing in until we find the elk. Thanks for getting me pumped. I hope I have similar luck. Good Job Man!!!

That's a great bull with any weapon! To get it with a bow is something special. Great job planning and scouting. It doesn't always come out THAT good. Congrats!

good luck backyard_hero. I like you took a few years to get it all figured out. I got my first bull last year with a rifle then my first with a bow this year. hang in there and keep doing what you are doin. as my grandpa always says "You cant catch a fish without a hook in the water and you wont get an elk without being in the woods" I hope to be reading your story soon.
