Hells Canyon Bull

Had a great hunt in Idaho's unit 18, Hells Canyon Wilderness. It is a fantastic area and is loaded with mature bulls and a lot of nice mature mule deer. It is a controlled hunt access but luckily a fantastic outfitter has an allotment of 9 tags.
We hunted one on one. He was open to ethical long range shots as he knew I had done a lot of training and would only take a well considered shot. I harvested this beauty across a canyon... it was a great hunt in amazing wild country.
As if this weren't enough, we followed up with a trophy Mule deer in the breaks of the the canyon.[IMG]file:///Users/kevinrogers/Desktop/DSC00702.jpg[/IMG]

    Over all it is steep rough country... a little intimidating. The outfitter however, new the country inside and out. We were able to quarter the bull and load it right onto the mules. The mules were pretty savvy and we followed game trails right to the elk.

    If you don't mind saying who was the outfitter? I am looking to do a hunt in Idaho next year.
