We had a great year. I took a bull with my bow during Anyweapons season. (actually the first day) And my wife took a nice cow a week later in the same spot(her first elk). We had a rough winter and I was suprised to see how healthy these elk were. Heavy and fatter than any I have ever seen. I was fortunate enough to get to pack both of these out by myself. LQQK at the neck on this bull. OCT. 10 and he was still riding the cows.
