Whose Elk Hunting this Year?

Nephew struck out on the second hunt, now maybe he's wishing he shot one of the 2 other bulls he was told to pass on, 1 more 4 day hunt to go. 

 

I was moose hunting in Newfoundland and we saw a couple of small bulls the first day of the hunt that the guide said to pass on.  That night a noreaster(sp) blew in.  It lasted for about 36  hours and left a foot of snow.  Needless to say that pretty much ended our hunting.  In the last thirty minutes of the hunt I finally saw another moose.  It was a cow which fortunately I had a tag for.

Nephew got his Elk back. A very lucky 🍀 young man. 

Nephew scored last evening. 6x7 #701, second biggest the butcher in the area had seen. Must have been that lucky hat  😉

Great job, that is one big bodied Bull...

Very good size for a Michigan bull.

Going out on the rifle opener tomorrow. Got close to getting one the last week of bow, but no cigar. I slipped in behind a herd so I was downwind in some heavy cover, and used my calf call. The bull was probably 30 yards away just screaming at me to get back up with the herd. Was pretty intense. Kinda like this!
