2006 Archery Elk
Our first 4 elk hunters did incredible when it came to number of elk seen. Combined they saw over 40 bulls. Lots of close calls and one hunter passed up a 5 x 5 at 35 yards in an attempt to harvest a larger 6 x 6 that was behind him. Unfortunately it never panned out. Even though all hunters saw bulls no shots were fired. Our own Fred Eichler after 5 days managed to shoot a nice 300+ bull on video.
Again this week all 3 of our hunters saw multiple bulls with a couple of really close calls. All three had a great time and are anxious to come back and try again.
We had 4 hunters this week and the first 20 minutes of the first day Steve from Utah harvested a beautiful bull that guide Jake called in for him. The last day of the hunt Diane from PA shot a beautiful 6 x 6 bull with her recurve that guide Dick called in to 11 yards for her. Our other two hunters saw bulls in the 300 + class and Jeff from Utah passed on a cow elk that guide Jake called into 8 yards. Lots of close calls and lots of bulls seen by everyone.
This week we had 6 hunters and had an awesome week although the elk all made it back to their beds. We had 5 shots missed and 2 hunters passed on small bulls (4x4 and 5x5) All hunters saw great elk and the guides had a blast working the rutting elk.
