I rifle hunt first season and spend a few weeks calling them in for fun in the Flat Tops in late Sept. We are pretty protective of our spot. Thus, I just prefer to post in the members section.

My hunting buddy Dan and I called in this bull on our first evening in our area. He is a beauty. We are calling him the beaded bull and hope to connect with him next week - 1st season. I got some of the best video footage yet. He came in real close. I still need to edit the footage down and post it. Here are a few screen shots.

Side story. I took the footage Friday evening. Continued down to the end of the trail near a cliff to spend the night. It was dark. I dropped my camera and it rolled off the cliff. I recovered it the next morning smashed. To my dismay the data was being recorded to the internal memory not the removable chip. Found a write up about an intern that figured out how to recovery the internal data on a similar camera to mine. I just got it back from the data recovery service today. It also had my Moab escalator footage on it. Whew!

nice! I know exactly where that spot is, I figured it had to be good for elk :)

Nice....That's an ass scratcher! Anytime a bull can scratch his own ass just by tilting his head back, you know you're looking at a quality animal.

Looking forward to seeing that video.

I'm looking to do my first elk hunt in the near future, first hunt of anything, really. Looks like you found a great spot and have been well rewarded for it!

I'm looking into a cow tag myself. Seems like most farms around here have lots of them though, so should be pretty easy. I bet the cleaning will be pretty tough, what with 4 stomachs and all.

After 5 days of hunting hard my friend Dan finally got a glimpse of the "Bearded Bull" on the ridge. It was from the same spot we took the Sept. video (sorry I still need to edit it down and post it). He had one shot and made it at 370 yds.

Upon further review of the pictures. Dan didn't shoot the same bull we bugled in. The tines on the side don't stick out as far as the Bearded Bull in the video I have.

A monster nonetheless! 370 yds is a good clip of real estate, nicely done.
