Solo hunt with the exception of the first morning. I scouted 10 days or so even though I knew where I would be hunting. The day before season the bulls I had were on the normal routine leaving me anticipating a quick hunt. Then the winds kicked in that night changing the pattern. I still had about 20 bulls within a couple hundred yards and one agreed upon shooter. He ended up two stepping my arrow as I released.

Yes sir! Congrats...

Saturday Sunday and Monday were saturated with wind rain and snow. Still saw a few good bulls. But with the lack of rain most were broken

I have enjoyed the late date bow bull hunts that I have drawn over the years.

Congrats on some fun hunting,

Tuesday finally non windy, non wet. The herd wasn't where I had been watch pre tsunami. Figured they were in the sun (it was very cold). Found a herd of about 10 bulls 150 yards away feeding or bedded. I inched closer. 40 yards in maybe an hour maybe longer than bull I shot got up to feed towards me. When I released when he got close enough. The other bills didn't have a clue and I could tell he was in bad shape.
