Cam is up first. Soon after light I call in a 5 point. Cam gets a range and draws back. He shoots and the bull bolts. I didn’t hear a thump . Cam says no way I missed. Bugles are ringing out. Roger slides up the hill and I bring 2 bulls by that split him . He swings on the bigger of the 2 . Whack . That want go far I tell Cam!

I see 3 bulls at the top Of the slide. I bugle and they scream back. I can’t take it and head up the hill. I turn around a throw Roger my tube and said keep him talking! He does just that. I see the bull up hill. Here he comes bugling down the hill. I have stop him at 4-5 yards . He takes a arrow to the chest. At this point I think we have 3 down. But soon find Cams arrow and it’s a miss.

Bulls are still talking. So I grab Cam and head up the hill. Soon we are close to the bulls. I range the closest one . 35 . You got this Cam. He shoots and I see the arrow hit a branch and dives low. He is sad . We give him a prep talk. Come on we got work to do. Lots of work! How we found them!

Great story! I keep looking at that pic of them 2 laying side by side and wondering..."????"

It was as if one was telling the other..."you'll be ok, catch your breath, I'll wait with ya buddy!" and the other one says, " whats that there leaking out your side?" and then the 1st one says, "I'm just gonna lay here for a sec" and the other says "sounds like a brilliant idea".

Only plausible explanation!

One of the coolest threads I've ever seen. Congrats on an awesome hunt....!! I'm sure you gentlemen do your homework (except for the part about getting the elk to fall side by side!). I am NOT going to forward this to my hunting partners however. A couple of them are first time elk hunters and don't want them getting any ideas that this is how it is supposed to work....!!

Wow. That was over before it started...... premature elk...... =D

You guys are machines for sure. Unreal. Never seen nor heard of em dropping like that side to side...... I'm just swinging at it here, but guessing one ran into where the other was. They both think they just got thumped by some invisible bull....... I can see em now walking stiff legged side by side with their heads angled and eye to eye like they do before they get with it...... then wobble, wobble and fall......

That's the wildest scene I've ever saw. Heard a story once about a couple guys that shot bulls while they were fighting and they never stopped fighting, went down together in a heap. But I never saw any pics of it. =D

Thanks much! Always look forward to "Elking Hunt". Knocked these down pretty fast...... must have some other place ya gotta be soon.... =D
