Here's my 2011 DIY Public Land bull. I shot him in New Mexico in 16B in the Gila Wilderness. He's a 5x6 and exceeded my expectaions for my first bull and especially since it was the fourth day of a five day hunt. He was the biggest bull we saw during the hunt. I sure love the Gila units in New Mexico!

Great bull man. What part of 16b did you hunt? We hunted that unit a few years back and seen some very good bulls. Didn't have too much luck though, i think someone gave them a copy of the proclamation! Seen bulls for 3 days before the hunt and opening morning they all disappeared. Anyway, great bull, congrats!!!!

No, actually I killed this bull with my .30-06 Savage Edge in the first rifle hunt in 16B which went from October 15-19. I killed him with one shot to the lungs. I sure am blessed to have killed a bull like this! I hunted in the wilderness area on horseback and killed this bull about two miles in the backcountry. We hunted the Diamond Creek area and saw many great bulls scouting but they all dissapeared on opening day! There were tons of people in Diamond Creek and so we moved to a different part of the Wilderness area which was North of Diamond Creek and we immedialtely began to see elk because no one else was there! Getting out of the pressure is the way to kill bulls in the Gila!

I was wrong, I actually killed this bull South of Diamond Creek in the Gila Wilderness.
