Ive just returned from my Idaho Archery elk hunt. Attached are some images and video of the hunt. I was hunting at 8,000 feet in South East Idaho and made a 43 yard, double lung shot on a bull.

I know a guy who transports bulls for one of those ranches and he has some good stories about moving and handling elk.

I believe the answer to that question is yes. No brain 🧠 material or spinal column.

High fence??? Sounds about right after reading some of the ops posts. To each there own.

You can be if you hunt the same high fence operation this poacher does.


It ain't my fault.

Fantastic bull! Been looking at Idaho again. Never saw bulls like that though, any outfitter details?

Bravo

There's a growing herd of elk along Idaho's border with NV and UT, south of the Snake River. I've seen some real dandies in there. Tags are very hard to get but it you can draw, the hunting's fairly easy compared to most elk country.

Your arrow setup is garbage! No pass through. But of course I am not surprised Mr. Poacher

Shot placement wasn't good either your high. Be honest lying poacher how far did he run?

Well he saved quite a bit of $$ going high fence, as you don't need a license \tag....

"I was hunting at 8,000 feet"... LOL
Like that had anything to do with anything.

You could have saved yourself 1500 miles of driving by visiting one of the numerous places in WI that also offer canned elk hunts.
But that wouldn't fit the narrative at home or to the three people in the world that think you're something/somebody.

But the view riding up 8000 feet in the golf cart was spectacular!

Tough crowd. I guess it's true what they say, you can bullsh*t the fan-boys but you can't bullsh*t the players.
