Idaho's archery season started yesterday (sunday) & the local boys keep a pretty close watch on them the last 2 weeks leading up to the opener. This nice bull was taken early the first morning by a friend of mine, he's probably taken 25 elk with his bow.

Very nice the only way I tghink I could get elk around here is to go to the zoo. I think they might frown on that. Steve

Well, today was the second day of archery & a friend & I decided to go for a little drive, still trying to find him a badger. We didn't expect to see much "big" game but we saw 5 deer & a nice bull elk, he was walking down an old fence line, there were 2-3 bow camps close by. They were probably all in camp tanking up on the group tightner! :wink:

So true about those folks in camp & their "group tightener." When I go hunting,, I go to HUNT. All day,, every day I can. And unless the weather forces a wait,, I'll be out in rain,, snow etc as I love it.
Wish I was there,,,,,! I'd love to be stalking & hunting a bull with my bow,,,!

Looks like he may have used a treestand? I raised a lot of eyebrows hunting elk from a treestand when I lived in New Mexico back in the 80s. I think it's pretty common now days, and can be very effective over a water hole or wallow.

You can hunt them in your state just got to drive to the other end of it. Probably only a 9 hour drive or so.

A couple years ago, someone killed a Elk in June/July in Southern Illinois. He kept it and reported it. In Illinois, the are no hunting regulations for elk. He got to keep it with no problems. They assumed it was an escaped elk from an elk farm. They were never able to figure out where it came from.

Understand there are some Elk in and around Cades Cove in east Tennessee. Hope we get a chance to see one next month!
Ya know, trying to mount every nice elk he has taken would get kinda expensive, but might be a gripmaker interested in those antlers! :!: :roll:
Tell yer friend a big congrats from us!
