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.

Hey Colohunter,

   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!!! Hello

Great Bull!

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

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.
