    my Dads bull was taken this Saturday at 30 yards. My brothers bull he got this morning. Both archery and both called in with Calls I made.

    This could possibly be my dads last hunting year with us due to health reasons so it has been a very emotional week. I couldnt be happier for them and it couldn’t have worked out any better.

    Stan, that is so awesome. I know it was emotional. I wish my dad was around to still hunt with me. Cherish the time afield with him. Congrats to them both.

    Yeah, Roosevelt bodies are typically bigger than the Rocky Mountain but smaller antlers. Both of these bulls where somewhat young. My dads younger than my brothers.

    about 6 yrs ago we took the old vantage road home , about an inch of snow -we were first on road that morning. It does not get used much anymore . about a 1/3 of the way down- Kathie said elk. we stopped and watched a herd of 300+- right out in desert and under the wind turbines. Huge bulls in that herd. They could care less that we were there.

    Nice hunt and fond memories. I am a penturner and cant help but think how many pens I could get out of a rack like that. Glad you were able to get to hunt together. I sure miss the hunting days with my dad.

    That's awesome, post pictures of your elk when you get it. We had a great time on our hunt in CO and I had the calls you made with me the entire time. Came up a little short and didn't harvest an elk, but had an awesome time, nonetheless.

    Ooooh, elk tastes good! One of the best dishes I got to eat when I was in the States. Good memories.

    I remember a herd of elks crossing in front of our car, and there were tourists stopping to take photos in YNP, as they normally do, but there was merely 20 of them, blocking the road. By the time the crowd gathered there were rumors of 200, 300+! :P old eyes, I guess! Hunter's tales!! :sofa:

    Anyhow, nice to see you hanging together. What arrowhead did he use?
