Idaho Elk Outfitter Report
Here was our last elk hunt in the Idaho Wilderness. We parked at our high base camp and bivvyed out up [No Tellum’] Creek. Remember that bow hunt with Jason, Brian and Steve? Threw caution to the wind and headed back into that country on this one and it paid off big time. I hadn’t even been in there in over a year.
This sucker is a toad. Packed this SOB out on my back, five trips total, 1,000 vertical up, 1,000 vertical down and about 5-6 miles per round trip. Feeling it today, but this is a real deal bull. Cut his tracks early in the snow, was freaking cold up there. All our food and water froze solid, even in the cooler. Had to thaw it out by the fire. Hammered him at 109 yards with a .308. There was another bull with him, but we never saw him, only his ghostly tracks through the burn.
Our last trophy hunter killed about a 335 bull as well. Hammering down.
