    Default A couple bulls

    20160904_090028_001[1].jpg Farewell area bull. No hesitation on whether to shoot this!

    I couldn't have asked for a better season. 2 hunts, 2 dandy bulls, meat in the freezer and paycheck in the bank!

    Nicely done! Doesn't look like a scary choice at all on that first bull. Those tines kick way out there - I'd think he's pushing close to 60"?

    20160904_090500[1].jpgAnother look at the first bull. Our camp is in the treeline in background. I recommend Folger's as a cover scent!

    Thanks, Brian. It wasn't scary; took less than 5 seconds to make the call, at 50 yards standing straight on in the open. Right side tine added about 4" to his width, giving him a touch over 57".

    True dat! Neither pack was very grueling; first moose was 50 yards from runway, second we drove 4 wheelers right to it! No problems with lifting the quarters on either bull, and the short packs I did were no trouble. He is indeed good!
