Congratulations on a nice bull. Headed to Idaho to hunt deer this week. Great state to hunt and fish.

Thanks guys! It was an incredible hunt.

Dave was able to come hunt with me on our Illinois farm a few years back and it was great to join him on his turf this time! I've hunted a few elk and been around a number of decent elk hunters, but Dave's knowledge, experience, and commitment to getting on bulls in the backcountry is truly next level stuff! I'll wait for him to chime in and regale you all with the full story (as his writing greatly surpasses mine) but just a few details:

Shot: 455 yards in steep country
Rifle: Shaen custom 6.5 PRC Kimber Montana (Brux, 23", tad heavier contour than factory)
Bushnell LRHS
Horn 143 ELDX (found 2 perfectly mushroomed under off-side hide, and the 3rd smashed the sternum and was not retrieved)
Packing the quarters, straps and rack 4 miles out (one-way!) my new Mystery Ranch Pitkin was great.
More to come... stay tuned.

Tim, Dave,
That’s a cool hunt in some beautiful country. From what I’ve read of iddave’s elk hunts - He usually suffers after the shot is made in West Coast style.

Great hunt you guys! 😎

PS

Brad only slums a 308 Win and always puts a mask on his bull for Home Land Security purposes. 😬

Scott and Tim flatter me too much. I do okay, but there are dudes out there that put me to shame. I mostly find success outworking others. My “hunting” skills are quite average. More to come I swear, with some great photos of Tim.

We killed two more bulls on Monday and JUST got them out of mountains. Eating a pizza in mountain town now, then driving down to Boise to get my son and head back up to try and find one more bull before season ends. I’ll get all caught up pictures and stories after Rowdy’s hunt this weekend.

Everyone cross your fingers we can find something for my son....

Dave
