Nice bull. Now you'll have to get out west and try a public ground fair chase hunt and see what elk hunting is all about.

Where did you hunt elk in a stand? Your story seems too easy for me. But nice bull, especially your first. You will never forget it unless someone else packed him out for you. Pack one out and the respect for an elk becomes one of the best hunting experiences ever.
