The last day of bow season here in Oregon and I called in a 4-point bull elk and got him at 35 yards. Perfect double-lung shot and he dropped 35 yards away...about 5 seconds total. What a rush!!

Wonderful! I have never bow hunted for elk, but I always thought they must look huge at that close range.

5 seconds total! Oh you must be just talking about the fun part. You must have a psychological block about the five hours of gutting, hauling and skinning afterward. ;)

Uuuhh, yeah...what I meant to say was 5 seconds from the time I released to the time we heard the big train-wreck crash.

They do look big at close range...it took me 5 seasons before I connected on my first elk. My first elk was a cow at nine paces , then my second was a spike at 38 yards and then this one at 35 yards...the last three season have been very successful for me...I thank the good Lord every time I think about it. I'm still just squirtin' all over myself...

If you ever get a 900lb screaming bull at less than 20 yds, it will stand the hair up on the back of neck, raise your heart rate to about 250 and it gets in your blood for the rest of your life!!! I have never hunted ANYTHING else that compares.
