View Full Version : 2012 Wyoming archery bull

09-29-2012, 01:49 PM
After many years of trying I was finally able to take my first archery bull. I snuck within thirty yards of this bull and his herd of 20 cows. After watching them for a while he rounded up the cows and pushed them up a trail to the timber at 30 yards, he was the last one in line as they came through single file. I did my best cow impersination and stoped him in my very small shooting lane, he only ran 40 yards and piled up. 8 hours and 22 miles of packing meat later I finally had him back to camp, what a day! I scored him at 362 gross. Going to be hard to top my first archery bull!

Welcome to the forum Paxton. You sure know how to make an apperence. Wow! You may want to stop right there but I doubt it. ;) Congrats on a great first bull!

I think he's a little bigger than 362.

Congrats Paxton,

I know how you feel about topping your first bull. I to shot my first archery bull this year. It was not as large as yours but it was a very respectable Roosevelt from Western Oregon. Congrats again and don't stop trying to top your first one!!!
