    Ok, so too early for rifle season, so i took this bull with the bow. Sometimes just have to get them close rather than the long range shots, i mostly leave that for varmints and love to hunt elk with the bow during the rut.

    30 yard shot, called the bull in from over 1/2 mile away, slight downhill shot, bull ran about 100 yards downhill after the 2 blade Rage broadhead did its work out of my Mathews DXT bow.

    6x6 bull with quick score in the field of around 354.

    That's a great elk no matter what you shot him with, you did call him in from long range. haha
