Colorado Sunday evening Sept 8. After applying 30 years for a bull tag without drawing I said screw it and put in for a cow this year. Couldn't be happier. I don't have another 30 years to wait!

Lark Bunting, my beautiful lady and Stoneman
Colorado 8:34am opening day, 42 yard shot, fell 10 yards from the shot. Ending up having more help than I could have ever asked for. Big shout out to Stoneman and Lark Bunting as well as the local CPW wardens up there who not only helped with the skinning process but loading up her quarters into their UTV and dropping them off at the truck! Unheard of

These are rifle kills so if ya dont like it you better close your eyes for a bit haha. Weather was pretty good for the days we hunted, little breezy and rainy, which was obviously perfect for our hunt! Started out calling and raking alot the day we got dropped off. Next morning we were hiking through a meadow into a small line of willows and caught something out of corner of my eye and realized it was a big bull in bow range, bad part is he was directly down wind and busted us and took off running, I knew he was big so I made the decision to switch to a rifle for my very first bull! In hindsight, if I wouldve known how fast we would have tagged out I would have held out with my bow!

Great bulls guys. You show why it takes 2-3 years to get a drop hunt booked with Papa Bear or Wade Renfro.

Here's another one for the meat pole....took this bull on 9/09 in the NWT. The bulls at that time were just starting to rut.....cruising but not yet with cows. This one had already been fighting some, with a few freshly busted antler tips on the palms. About a 40 yard shot and a 75-yard recovery.

Not the biggest, but being within 100 yards of my dropoff point and me hunting solo sealed his fate. Pretty much shot him from my tent (which you can see in the background along with the moose decoy he had a deadly obsession with). Called the night before since I couldn't hunt that day anyway, woke up, took a leak and heard grunting coming from behind me. Walked right past me on his way to the decoy. Quickest moose hunt ever. Loaded him in the plane the same day and was back at my buddies lodge that night.

Nick that bull has great brows. No question he was legal! Congratulations to you and your partners.

Man what a thread so far!! Some great bulls guys, congrats and thanks for sharing!

I leave on Saturday to start the journey north. Picking up 2 buddies in Alberta and then heading to the Yukon to fly back into Northern BC for an 11 day hunt on a fly-in lake. We have an inflatable boat and canoe and going to be 3 of us trying to get it done with a bow and will also have a rifle or two along. This thread is keeping the dream alive and passing the time until we head north!

Grats guys. Damn Ermine, that's a Hell of a lower 48 bull. And looks like he died in a real convenient place to cut him up too.
