Once again, while scouting for the archery elk hunt I found this unique bull. I called him "Curly". He was always in the same place tending his ladies, so I figured he would be a good bull to keep in my back pocket in case the hunt was nearing a close or we just needed a change of scenery. We never did hunt him too hard until the end of the hunt. Unfortunately, while closing the distance on him, my hunter shot a different bull.

Here are a couple bulls I was able to film while out scouting for elk just a few days before the archery season with Josh Esparza. We followed this and another good bull for about an hour before we were finally able to get a look at him. Unfortunately, there was a bunch of brush in the way. Rather than push him, we decided to leave them undisturbed. We never did go back to hunt him or the other bull we found that morning, although they were both solid bulls.
Here are a few still images of the brush bull.

While scouting for elk last season, we came across this bull a couple different times. We had glassed him from a long ways off and knew he had some non typical points. This was the first time we were able to get close enough to get some good footage of him. He has a real unique point that curls back off the beam behind his right ear.

While looking for another specific bull during an archery hunt we came across this bull. We called him Sawtooth due to the two small inline extra points toward the end of his left main beam. He is a great bull and put on quite a show for us while we continued to look for the bull we had come into the area to find.
