It took me a while to get this posted, but here it is. Buckhunter and I and Mr. Duckworth and his 9 year old son Duckworth Jr. were walking up this....lets call it steep road. We were just cow calling and stopping every so often to listen. All of a sudden the whole world woke up around us and there were elk everywhere. We set up with buckhunter above me on the hill and me calling and the duckworths a little further down the hill. I thought that I heard something down below me. It turned out to be the elusive squirel elk throwing pine cones out of a tree. I kept callin at those elk up the hill for buckhunter when I heard something else behind me. When I turned around there was a bull walking up the hill behind me looking for that lonesome cow. When I cow called at him he turned and started walking back down the hill and stopped behind a tree. Just as soon as I was thinking I need someone to bugle Mr. Duckworth let one rip. That bull started walking toward the "bull" looking for a fight. He stopped quarteded away with his head behind a tree at 20 yards. What else could I do but draw and center the 20 yard pin and release. Contact!!!!:dance::dance: He turned and ran then stopped when I cow called at him. I shot him again, but him him really low. He turned and ran down the hill and out of sight. After I go my wits about me the blood trail was easy to follow with the double lung hit. He ran about 100 or so yards and that is where we found him a nice 3x5 coast bull. That is the first elk that I have ever taken. What an awesome experience!!! Thanks again to buckhunter and the Duckworths for all the help. Couldn't have done it without you.:cheers: That is what it is all about a great hunt with great friends. :grin:

Here is the mighty Buckhunter on that fateful trip. This is before he was used as a packmule!!:laugh::laugh:







And here are Mr. Duckworth and Duckworth Jr. Right before the trudge up the hill started. Sorry that I didn't have any better pictures.



I am totally addicted as was mentioned before by fellow bowhunters that also share my affliction. Can't wait for late season deer!!
