    Default Finally on Ft. Rich

    I've been out 25-30 times since the day after opener and finally connected yesterday. This bull was running with another bull and two cows. I saw two other bulls and and another cow while there. One bull walked about ten feet from where mine lay.

    That is a pretty cool pic, two bulls. Why is the other one still standing? Were you alone or just out of arrows?

    Congrats! That's a cool picture with the second bull. Wonder what was going through his mind?

    Lookin' like a shoulder mount is going to be done, is that your plan?

    Default They know the regs!

    That bull knew I couldn't shoot him. That has to be why he walked through. No shoulder mount, just an antler mount for this guy. He only measured 43.

    Thumbs up

    Great job on your moose that a little unnerving having another bull that close while taking care of a downed moose.

    Nicely done, Yogi! I love reading stories where persistence pays off. Luck on opening day is fun, but there's something deeply satisfying about grinding it out and finally earning that success.

    Good looking bull! Funny how they can sense when it is "safe" to hang around.

    Sent you a PM.

    Smile Yo Arrow flinger,

    You scored! You could have called it a season on try number 22 or so, but you stuck it out and filled the freezer! ...you are definitely a seasoned AK bowhunter with all the arrow afflicted critters you put in your freezer in the last few years - great job! The equation proved correct: Kill a furball griz = harvest a moose. Artemis smiles on you. That's a great b-day present, you old fart. Nice rack!

    Good job! Nice bull. Did he come in to a call or did you just get lucky and be in the right spot at the right time?

    Default Nice!!

    Nicely done and good photos. Looks like a great bull! What do you mean "he ONLY measured 43"? That is a sweet animal, no minimizing him or your efforts.
    Pretty neat to see that other bull so close. Quite the memory.
