Was just reading the thread "first lil elk". Made me think how special ones first bull is. 22 years and many elk ago, I still remember my 1st like yesterday. Was a 4x5 bull , DYI in Colorado public land unit 33. I used a Model 700 30-06 purchased 2nd hand just so I could go elk huntin. It was my first morning ever huntin elk. Me and a buddy drove as far back in as a 4WD would take us a week before season opened. Found this lil bull, waited on season to open then got him. I'd like to hear about your first bull memories.
