    Smile 2013 Nevada Smokepole Bull

    Here are a few pictures of the bull I took this last season. It was a tough hunt as I think we got more snow and cold in September than we have had all this winter. I passed on a pile of small bulls and even a couple of 350 type bulls and was preparing for the five year wait before the elk gods smiled down on me on day 13. Glad I held out and stuck to my goal as it finally paid off.

    Great bull! What units are you looking into? What weapon choice? I think you could draw your first choice if you go archery. Ps that bulls vitals must have just flowed right out when you opened him up!

    Ya, The first shot had a good line just a touch high. Rangefinder fell out of the case while stalking him so had to guess like the old days. He went down but had to get a couple more in him so he would go to sleep. Definitely got a little western for a few minutes. I quartered him and cut his backbone to get the loins otherwise I bet he would have done a self cleaning.
