Picked up my buddy at 8:45, we were at the trailhead by 12:15 and got a few hours of sleep. We packed enough gear for 5 days of hunting in the backcountry. Hit the trail a little before 5:00. We were a couple miles in at daylight when we heard this bull bugle. After working him for a few minutes, we had him killed before 7:00. So much for 5 days in the backcountry. He tricked me a little bit because of the extras, so I thought he was a bit bigger than he ended up, but is a cool bull with some character.

Special thanks to my buddy Clay for calling this bull into 17 yards and packing the elk out all day. Also, thanks to Adam from this forum for helping me out and showing me around some.

You missed out on all of the suspense of having an unfilled tag at daylight on Day 5 😀

Nice bull with a lot of character. Congratulations!
