2010 Buffalo River Bull


I got this Bull opening morning along the Buffalo National River in the Arkansas Ozarks. With dense fog rolling off of the river He was just in the edge of visibilty at a whopping 100 yds. He was thrashing a tree with his rack and I couldn't see that he had broken off his G2 until after he was down. He ended up being a respectable mature 5x5 that I will be happy to hang on my wall. 300 WinMag 180 accubond

    Man I wanna elk hunt where you do. Rifle season in a T-shirt, close to the rutt, and flat ground no less! You sir have it made! Congrats on the bull. Its bigger than the 5 point on my wall even without the G2.

    Edit; I just re-read my post and it seemed a bit gruff. I was not thumbing my nose at your hunting ground. It was meant as an envious compliment. Again, nice bull. congrats

    Thanks to all for the compliments.
    Yes WinMag it was physically the easiest elk hunt that I've done, by far!
    My last bull was at 11000 ft in the snow, 15 horse miles from the trailhead.
    This was a rare opportunity only a 2 hour drive from where I live. The worse thing was unusually hot 90+ degree afternoon temps. Had to work fast to take care of the meat. Anyway didn't have to worry about any griz or wolves on this one.
    Went swimming in the river the afternoon after the hunt.

    Man that is awesome, I have been through that area several times and never seen an elk in my home state. It would be nice to hunt them there, but those of us from Arkansas are pretty envious of the western state hunters.
