Default Wife's 2007 Bull Elk

Here is my wife Amy's 2007 archery bull 5x6. Taken at 30 yards, double lunged, stumbled about 50 yards and fell in her view. This is her first year archery hunting. Story: Spotted the elk across a drainage moving down to some lower meadows near a creek. We came in down wind, used the creek to get with in 60-70 yards. Set up with myself and her up front, two friends droped back about 30 yards behind us, and cow called with a few small bugles, broke branches & raked a tree real hard at the end to get them to close the distance. Came in broadside and the Montec G5 followed by a gold tip 3555 found the mark stopping at the opposite shoulder. She is shooting a bowtech miranda with a 43 pound draw. A really neat bull, his tops look red stag like, with each of the tops having three points each real close together.

PS, On her Bowtech, move the Silencers on her limb away from the limb pockets and to about 1/4 in from the V at the cams...per Matt / PA.
