After 29 days of hunting this September, with multiple close calls, I finally made it happen on the final day of the season. We crept in on the herd and was able to bugle the herd bull into 18 yards. I took a frontal shot and center punched him through the wind pipe/jugular and into the chest cavity. He was dead within 100 yards. I still haven’t came down off the high of harvesting this bull, after hunting 25 days last september and every day this year with the exception of one day, it really still feels like a dream. I shot him with my elite option 6 and iron will v125 Broadhead.

Very well done. Seems our rut was late this fall, spouse had a nice LQ tag and couldn't make it happen.
I know several NR that had good success.


Curious as to which part of the state, not the area of course ?

I’m lucky enough to work about 5 minutes from the National Forest in Wyoming. I shot him about 8 miles from work.
