Growin' Bone - June 18

I took my first trip of the year to a spot I refer to as "the elk factory". The spot lived up to its name. I saw one of the largest groups of velvet bulls I have ever personally seen. There were several 6 points already and a few bulls that showed some potential to be shooters.

Babe Ruth Bull

This Bull looks to be the "Babe Ruth" of elk! With the big ol' Luisville Slugger he has hanging off his left antler, no other bull dares to challenge him! His body is absolutley giant! Thanks to my friend, Jeff Lester from Hunt Hard Outfitters for sharing the footage with us.

Growin' Bone - June 10

Video of a group of bulls I found today after a long mountain bike ride with my wife. Some of these bulls are looking pretty good with plenty of time to grow!

Bob's Big Bull

I had the privilege of accompanying Bob when he took his first elk last year. He was 72 years old and had not had a successful elk hunt to this point. After his nephew Joe tagged out, I set out with Bob to find a shooter. That first evening I spent glassing some open country known for feeding lots of bulls. Just as I had anticipated, several bulls began pushing their harems out of the trees just before dark. There was one bull that stood out with a very unique shape to his rack. The bulls frame was kinda narrow, but he had some good tine length and thirds that shot straight out before curling up. The plan was to get there early enough in the morning to catch them on their way back into the trees. Our slow but steady approach in the dark proved just fast enough as we were able to get in front of the last group of elk to leave the meadow. As luck would have it, it was the same bull I had glassed the night before. If you watch closely, you can see blood erupt from the first wound mid body as the second round makes impact in the lower neck. Many thanks to Carl Bryant for capturing it all on film!

Broken Dreams Bull

This broken bull's dreams are crushed when he loses his lone hot cow to "coyote ugly".

Bull Shizz

Got some great 35 yard footage of this little guy tonight, June 2nd. Not one of the big ones I was looking for, but he wanted to be a movie star! Was he worth burning a couple minutes of film on?
Do bulls poop in the woods????

Yes they do :)

Coyote Ugly Bull

As elk began to filter into the meadow, this wide 6x6 sounded off to every challenger that called. He was following his "hot" cow like a whooped puppy dog! He was definitely a wide bull, but not the best looking bull we had seen. After we saw the coyote run by him, we affectionately referred to him as the "coyote ugly" bull.
